TEASIG: An ambidextrous model of assessment in the second language writing classroom
Join IATEFL Testing, Evaluation and Assessment SIG and Isabela Villas Boas for this webinar.
In the leadership literature, ambidextrous refers to leaders who can implement disruptive innovations in their companies while, at the same time, support the current core business. In this talk, the presenter will borrow this idea of ambidexterity to discuss how teachers can balance assessment innovations in the EAP writing classroom with more traditional assessment practices in order to meet students’ needs.
