Full-day pre-conference teacher workshop

NCOLCTL teams up with ACTFL to offer ACTFL's OPI Familiarization Workshop. This is an introduction to the ACTFL Proficiency Guidelines, the ACTFL Rating Scale, and the ACTFL OPI. Participants will be able to view demonstration interviews and discuss the implications of the ACTFL Proficiency Scale and the OPI for establishing program goals, and for planning curriculum, instruction, and assessment.

ACTFL's OPI is the most widely used method in the U.S. for measuring speaking proficiency in a language. Participants will leave with a valuable foundation in second language assessment, curriculum design, and instruction. After attending this workshop, participants will be better equipped to determine the speaking abilities of their students and able to use effective questioning strategies that promote oral proficiency.

This workshop is suitable for LCTL instructors/teachers who are interested in acquiring professional development or are pursuing further OPI Assessment training or OPI tester certification.

$125.00 for NCOLCTL Members
$250.00 for Non-Members

Thursday April 25, 2013 from 10 AM to 5:30 PM EDT
