Meeting Description:

The aim of the meeting, organized by the DITALS Centre of the University for
Foreigners in Siena (Italy), is to discuss methods of assessment and evaluation
criteria in foreign language teacher education (knowledge and skills). A team of
experts has already met twice in Siena (TQAC 2008 and 2009) to discuss and give
answers to the main issues on EFL teacher training. This third meeting (with
workshop) will enable participants to compare good practices in language teacher
training in Europe and beyond (TQAC 2009 focussed on Canada,TQAC 2010 will
focus on USA), in the context of the current European policy for foreign
language teaching. Relevant European documents will be illustrated (Profile,
EPOSTL, TrainEd, QualiTraining etc.) and progress of EAQUALS grid on teaching
skills will be analyzed in view of teaching awards used in various European

Three important European documents will provide a background framework: European
Profile for Language Teacher Education (2004), EPOSTL (European Portfolio for
Student Teachers of Languages) (2005) and TrainEd (First steps in teacher
training. A practical guide) (2007), recently translated into various languages.

Representatives from language teacher training certification bodies will take
part in the meeting in order to illustrate teaching assessment methods for
teachers of English, German, French, Italian, Spanish and other languages.
