The Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) offers learners the chance to investigate any aspect of the culture of a language that they are studying, speak at home or would like to start at university At level 3, the EPQ carries the same points as an AS level – it is the standard of an A level but only half the breadth.
Following on from his introductory session last June, Nick will cover the basic principles of the Extended Project Qualifications, including; choosing a good title, assessment criteria and how it can enhance your learners’ cultural understanding. The presentation will include a range of examples and ‘tips and tricks.’
Project learning is ideally suited to both a face to face and an online learning environment. Learning is richer and more rewarding when learners have the skills they need to take charge of the learning process and when they have the opportunity to utilise questions and challenges that engage their interest.
