We have a great presentation lined up as we welcome Patrizia M. J. Hayashi and our very own treasurer, Tyson Rode, who will be presenting for us this weekend.
Shaping Global Standards to Meet Local Needs: A Workshop
This workshop will present techniques for adopting a global framework of language learning standards to meet the needs of local educational institutions. The presenters will provide an example of how they successfully implemented a CEFR-based curriculum using the Global Scale of English (GSE) developed by Pearson to align with EIKEN targets. Workshop participants will use materials provided by the presenters and gain experience with elements of backward design by selecting learning objectives for various contexts.
Annual General Meeting (AGM) and Officer Elections
After the presentation, we will hold our Annual General Meeting (AGM) where we discuss the state of the chapter as well as hold officer elections for our executive board. Those who are elected will take over their positions following the close of our international conference in November. If you are interested in becoming an officer and helping to lead our great organization, please attend and put your name forward! The positions up for a vote our President, Vice President, Membership Chair, Publicity Chair, Program Chair, and Treasurer. Please reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions about what any of the positions entails. We need as many of our current members to attend the AGM as possible, so please join us for this very important event.
As always, we plan to go out for some food and drinks following the event, so we hope you will set aside time to join us for some post-presentation socializing.
