workshop attendees

Past event summary

This is a one-day workshop focused on the reporting and implementation of the European Language Portfolio in Higher Education. It provided an opportunity for the 11 UK universities participating in the Project to present and exchange experiences and ideas on the trial. The workshop was of particular interest for those who wished to:

  • Use the ELP in their own department/institution
  • evaluate the effectiveness of the ELP as a reflective and reporting tool

The presenters have all been working on a Nuffield Foundation funded mini-projects to implement and evaluate the role of the European Language Portfolio. Each session will consist of one case study followed by the highlighting of key issues and discussion. It is hoped that by the end of the day a framework for future collaboration will evolve.
