Post TESL Certificate Training (PTCT): Classroom-Based Planning and Assessment Incorporating the CLB

The third “Classroom-Based Planning and Assessment Incorporating the CLB” online course commenced in April 2015. This course is designed for ESL teachers who want to increase their classroom planning and assessment skills in programs using the CLB. It is only one of the courses offered by TESL Ontario as part of the PTCT program.

CCLB’s ten-week online course consists of a three-part assignment in which participants pilot a module plan and two assessment tasks, customized to the participant’s own classroom context. The course also provides a strong foundation for those preparing to use Portfolio-Based Language Assessment (PBLA). The course is open to any teacher who meets the pre-requisites for entry. Participants are required to have a TESL Certificate or TESL Ontario Accreditation, 200 to 300 hours of teaching experience at a government institution (recommended) and experience with the CLB. Due to the nature of the course, participants either need to have their own classroom or access to learners in order to pilot assignment assessment tasks. Previous participants have advised they spend approximately 10 hours a week on assignments, online posts and readings. It is a graded course and 70% is required for successful completion.

The next course will start in October 2015. For information and registration please contact: Kathy Hughes at [email protected].
