Partnership for Excellence in Language Learning - PAL - Good practices in Academic Management
The following papers summarize workshops delivered during the development of the project. In Autumn 2015 the project team visited different schools in Trentino in order to observe language classes and to gather feedback on language learning experiences. As a result of this visit, a diversity of teaching methodology and approaches to language learning were noted. In Novembre 2016 principals, vice-principals and heads of foreign language teaching departments were invited to participate to workshops focusing on the following Academic Management areas: Quality assurance in language teaching; Mission and policy statements which reflect an overall vision; Creating opportunities for professional development; Formative and summative assessment. These were lively interactive sessions and much sharing of best practice took place. As an outcome the participants were invited to create an action plan of short and long term aims for developments in their individual organisations.
