Post TESL Certificate Training (PTCT): Classroom-Based Planning and Assessment Incorporating the CLB 10-week online course

CCLB will offer the fourth Classroom-Based Planning and Assessment Incorporating the CLB online course in early October 2015 (October 7 start date to be confirmed). This course is designed for ESL teachers who want to increase their classroom planning and assessment skills in programs using the CLB. It is one of the courses offered by TESL Ontario as part of the PTCT program. 

CCLB’s ten-week online course includes a three-part assignment to pilot a module plan and two assessment tasks, customized to the participant’s 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 prerequisites for entry. Participants are required to have a TESL Certificate or TESL Ontario Accreditation.  Some 200 to 300 hours of teaching experience at a government institution is recommended as is experience with the CLB. Due to the nature of the course, participants need to have either 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 80% is required for successful completion.
