Recently there has been a growing interest in using the CEFR and the CEFR Volume 2020 in language education. However, many of those involved in language learning, teaching and assessment are unsure how to understand and implement the framework. 
This online course is therefore designed to address such uncertainties. It will cover aspects such as the innovative aspects of the CEFR’s approach to language learning, teaching, and assessment, and will illustrate the use of the CEFR and the Companion Volume 2020 with examples of their (successful) implementation.

The course tutor, Prof. Waldemar Martyniuk (Jagiellonian University, Kraków, Poland) is a worldwide expert in language education and assessment and brings fresh perspectives on how to use the CEFR. The course is suitable for language teachers, language assessment specialists and anyone interested in language learning and testing, with or without CEFR experience.

There will be two half-day sessions:
Thursday, 9 May: 09.00 - 12.30 CET
