Let me tell you about my research: An evaluation & feedback plan deconstruction

Date and Time: 
Sunday, 19 March 2017 - 2:15pm - 4:20pm

Evaluating speaking skills while providing useful and easy to understand feedback is always a struggle of balancing what is doable with what is pedagogically appropriate. This presentation considers a pilot evaluation and feedback plan incorporated into a graduate-level ESP course to help students to informally and formally talk about their research projects.
