Many thanks to Joe Dale who  co-ordinates our  regular TiLT (Technology in Language Teaching) webinars and invites a range of inspiring teachers from across the globe.

Teaching and assessing languages remotely has been challenging but at the same time it has brought opportunities to refresh, reimagine and reboot our teaching practice. In this webinar, Melissa Gould-Drakeley will present some useful online tools for assessing language tasks. She will also show how classrooms can be reconfigured to take advantage of online tools, shifting towards a blended model for successful language learning.

Melissa Gould-Drakeley is Curriculum Inspector Languages at the NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA). She was formerly Dean of Studies at Macarthur Anglican School, a K-12 school on the outskirts of Sydney.  Melissa taught Indonesian for 30 years and she has also studied French and German. She has a strong interest in curriculum, innovative teaching and learning, intercultural language learning and assessment. She has co-authored the Indonesian language text book series Saling Silang which has an intercultural focus. Melissa holds a Master in Education (Languages), has contributed to numerous journal articles and book chapters and presented at national conferences. Melissa is a former president of the Modern Language Teachers Association (MLTA) NSW and ACT.  She has been acknowledged by the Australian Federation of Modern Language Teachers Association (AFMLTA) and the Professional Teachers Council  NSW for her contribution to the MLTA NSW. She was also awarded an Australian government award for her leadership in languages.
