This session will dive into the world of online assessment of language proficiency in the light of planned and unplanned moves online with our teaching and learning. We will tackle the issues of whether we should be testing at all when learning has undergone such an upheaval, where responsibility for quality lies, and test security and proctoring principles and practicalities. We will also explore opportunities that this change might bring, such as a (re-)consideration of portfolio assessment, integrated skills assessment, and open-book exams, from the perspective of the student, teacher and institution.

Trying to teach teens online can feel like cruising down a highway or being stuck in a traffic jam. How can we intervene appropriately to increase student motivation and promote full engagement? Five elements for a smooth journey are: thinking, empathy, activity, choice and harmony. The facts that will be presented in this session will make you aware of what it is and how it feels to be a teenager and will also give you better driving skills and help you deal with problems when you are “on the high-speed road” with teens.

Key factors stimulating the growth of bilingual education programmes in Brazil are the high status of English in the globalized world and the increased awareness of parents to the possible socio-economic benefits of learning English as a foreign language. Within this scenario, this lecture discusses and problematizes bilingual education in Brazil and the assumptions of creating bilingual scenarios to promote English language learning. The aim is to focus on lessons learned in our working and research contexts and reflect on ways forward for the improvement of bilingual education in Brazil.
