Episode 24: Marijke Geurts

Marijke Geurts is an instructor at the YMCA of Greater Saint John, New Brunswick. She is implementing Portfolio-based Language Assessment (PBLA) in a LINC program through a format that blends face-to-face and online delivery using the LINC courseware (edulinc.org).

Marijke’s teaching context is not a typical LINC program.

She meets her students in class for half of her contact time and she assigns work for her learners to do outside of class.

Marijke has successfully integrated this blended delivery model using edulinc.org and PBLA.

There are two parts to Marijke’s podcast.

In Part One, she describes her teaching context including how she integrates the face-to-face using some sample activities.
