Dear all,

We hope you have had a good start to the new week and would like to inform you about the upcoming events at our school.

Shaexperience Session -1 (2016)

This week Ayfer Karaca from UGE and Cafer Çavdar from Lifelong Learning Academy will give this year’s first Shakespearance session on how to use Google Docs. The session will take about 60 minutes it will focus on helping teachers and administrators use Google Docs in their daily practices with zero cost for registration and follow-up process. For educational institutions, it is important to generate, process and track the data in a timely fashion. This presentation will illustrate how best to attain that standard of efficiency. Firstly, “google docs” will be introduced with a specific focus on working collaboratively on projects with others who may not be there physically. Secondly, the presentation will explore how these documents interact with each other and how to ensure they work properly. Finally, practical ways of tracking communication will be explained. The whole session will be hands-on, with enough room for questions at the end. Please also be informed that the session will be conducted in Turkish.

Cambridge English webinars for teachers: Understanding writing assessment: what every teacher should know

Dear webinar colleague

Join us for the third in our series of six webinars on Understanding Assessment:  Understanding writing assessment: what every teacher should know

on Monday 12 December 14.00 – 15.00 (UK time*) and Wednesday 14 December 10.00 – 11.00 (UK time*). 

*Check the times of the webinar where you are: Monday and Wednesday


Looking at written work is a common method of assessment familiar to many teachers, but when we think about writing assessment more carefully, there are many questions to address. What kinds of writing samples should be assessed? What should be done with writing samples once we have them? What criteria should be used to assess writing? We address these issues in this webinar, and show how thinking about the purpose and context of assessment can help us to answer these questions.
