14:45 A Multidimensional Needs Analysis as an Essential Basis for Quality Training and Testing
Dorota Chromiñska / Martin Beck
Before designing a specific training course for Technical English it is necessary to carry out some form of needs analysis so as to establish a course syllabus that is of relevance for the group. The quality design of a course is a necessary starting point for the success of any language course and is dependent on the establishment of a quality assurance scheme for training and testing.

16:45 How do you get Technical English students to C1?

Geoff Tranter
For professional and career reasons it is obviously better for students in all technical areas to achieve a proficiency level as high as possible on the CEFR scale. But if students are already “independent users” at B1/B2, how can teachers enable them to progress further? This workshop will look at a range of materials and activities that support teachers in this aim.

Organised by the Technical University Warsaw and MONDIALE-Testing (supported by Procter&Gamble and BEST).
