April 18th, 2015: Shinshu Chapter, Matsumoto, 2:00pm - 5:00pm. Morten Hunke's (FLP SIG) talk on Implementing CEFR and Can-do Descriptors. 

Can-do Statements & Assessment in a Japanese Context 

The CEFR and can-do descriptors are not news anymore in Japan. But does that mean we all understand all the multifaceted implications, possibilities, and limitations of them as tools to enhance our teaching and our students learning? Certainly not. Many of us are simply being told to use them. MEXT expects institutions in the education sector to implement them, and our school administration may expect us to implement the CEFR or CEFR-J at the curriculum or classroom level. How does one go about such a feat? How can we ensure that the CEFR is implemented effectively, and not merely as a top-down adaptation of yet another framework? How do we not lose sight of our students' and our needs as learners and educators?

May 16th & 17th, 2015: PAN SIG  in Kobe. FLP SIG Presentation on May 16th (Saturday): "Narratives included: The wider scope of the CEFR"

The Common European Framework of Reference is often discussed with topics such as learner autonomy, (self-)assessment or the well-known can do statements, giving the impression of a linguistic only, restricted evaluation tool. The flexibility and the wider scope of the CEFR are often not discussed, neglecting the benefits of the inner concept. This presentation will show that aspects such as literature, pragmatics, and culture are part of it. The implementation of the CEFR in France is one example of how literature and culture are integrated in the foreign language education. Other implementations (e. g. Germany, Japan) will be compared and discussed.
