Curriculum Guidelines for the Ontario Adult Non-Credit Language Training Program

The Ontario Curriculum Guidelines, funded by the Ministry of Citizenship, Immigration and International Trade (MCIIT) are in the final development stages. Quartz, the interactive planning tool, was custom built for instructors in the Adult Non-Credit Language Training Program. The feedback that arose from the     e-training pilot is informing updates that are more user friendly, intuitive, and undoubtedly serve to enhance the design and delivery of ESL/FSL courses in Ontario.

Work on Quartz has now resumed with the CCLB and Toronto Catholic District School Board teams and the multimedia firm Soshal. Changes will be made to the tool based on the comments received during the validation phase: new, more intuitive navigation, the ability to share lesson plans, and new content. The purpose of these changes is to meet the needs of the ESL and FSL Ontario communities.
