Event description

Description

This workshop aims to introduce the UNILANG certification scheme and to familiarise participants with the level descriptors in the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR).

The Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR), developed by the Council of Europe, has become a widely accepted framework for describing individual language proficiency. Its six proficiency levels are increasingly used to inform or express language learning outcomes in Higher Education, recognised by lecturers, students and employers.

The UNILANG certification scheme sets out to validate those CEFR learning outcomes through a reliable and standardised model of language learning certification. A recognised certificate will inform students’ cv’s and will verify the value of their languages alongside the award of credits or other HE certification schemes.

At the University of Liverpool we aim to award UNILANG certificates from 2018/19. This workshop will bring together UNILANG examiners John Morley (Manchester University) and Marion Coderch- Barrios (Durham University) and local language teachers and lecturers to (re)consider their language curricula in the light of the CEFR framework. Participants will learn to align observed student ability and learning outcomes with CEFR proficiency levels, to assess their students accordingly and to develop appropriate tasks and modules.

Attendance is free, but places at this event at Liverpool University are limited so please register.

We hope that some of you can join us.
