In mid-January, a new online course, Classroom-Based Planning and Assessment Incorporating the CLB was launched on CCLB’s e-learning site. The course is designed for ESL teachers who want to increase their classroom planning and assessment skills in programs that use the CLB. It is one of the courses offered by TESL Ontario as part of the Post TESL Certificate (PTCT) program. This is a ten-week online course with two synchronous discussions held on The current participants are in the first stages of a three-part assignment designed to pilot a module plan and two assessment tasks, customized to their classroom context. The course also provides a strong foundation for those preparing to use Portfolio-Based Language Assessment (PBLA).

There are plans to offer this fee-payer course two more times this year. The course is open to any teacher who meets the pre-requisites for entry into the course, with priority given to those instructors who are from Ontario. If you have any questions about the PTCT course or wish to add your name to the waiting list, please contact Kathy Hughes at [email protected].
