I'd like to draw your attention to an event in Osaka on March 14th and 15th about Portfolio Assessment. Fergus O'Dwyer has formed a group with the aim of adapting the European Language Portfolio Framework, for use in Japan, and translating it into Japanese. For me the exciting thing about the European Language Portfolio approach is that it offers a way of including oral tasks in the portfolio and generally gets students to focus on what they can do, and expand it. Here's the message from Fergus and PS from me:

The seminar will tentatively consist of workshops, case studies and most importantly working on action plans (it is hoped the project teams will work together between now and mid-March on action plans with the seminar used to present and discuss the preliminary results of the action plans).

PS me again... Unfortunately I'm going to be in England from 5th to 22nd but am following developments with much interest and look forward to being able to access those profiling tools in Japanese and English, with enthusiasm. Ellen
