Business Communication (BizCom) SIG of JALT:
Mediation, Interaction and Pluricultural Competence: How can the new CEFR help English teachers?
Date: Thursday, April 9th, 2020 Time: 8:00 PM - 9:00 PM
Speaker: Kirsten Waechter
In this webinar, Kirsten Waechter will take a closer look at some new features of the revised CEFR framework for language learning and will explore to what extend it can help English teachers in their job. The new CEFR now reflects skills and competence a lot more detailed, allowing for better descriptions of competence and skills. Its new categories include pluricultural skills, mediation and a closer look at functions of interaction and production, for example in correspondence or teamwork. The extended skills descriptions can be extremely useful when designing a course or setting goals for our learners to achieve and revising whether the goals have achieved. This webinar will focus on the categories of mediation and pluricultural communication to demonstrate how the new descriptors can help us in our work.
