  • VES Hosts Professional Development Workshop for World Language Department

    Last week at VES, we hosted a four-day intensive professional development workshop for the World Languages faculty. We were joined by Dr. Mark Darhower of NC State University, who trained the faculty in how to conduct and rate Oral Proficiency Interviews (OPI) using the speaking standards developed by the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages. The OPI assesses functional language ability, making it a holistic assessment of a speaker's strengths and weaknesses in real-life situations. Our faculty will use this tool for diagnostic placement and program evaluation. In addition, the ACTFL standards we studied serve as guiding principles in the design of course materials and assessments for the World Languages curriculum.
