Osaka JALT:

Two presentations: (1) Global Issues and Creative Mind-Mapping; (2) Testing Basics: The ABCs

Date: Sunday, September 15th, 2002 Time: 1:00 PM - 4:30 PM

Speaker: Tim Newfields

The first presentation examines how students from various countries perceive the world and shows creative ways for students to "map out" their world views. Four personal mapping exercises which challenge so-called "objective" world views will be demonstrated. Practical hints for using mind mapping in class will be underscored.
The second presentation focuses on basic classroom assessment and testing procedures. It explains some basic testing information resources and some alternative assessment approaches. Practical issues concerning portfolio assessment, negotiated grading, and student-generated tests will be considered.
Tim Newfields is coordinator of the JALT Testing and Evaluation SIG an editor of the Global Issues SIG web page. He teaches at Nanzan Junior College in Nagoya and has an MA degree.
