About the chapter
Dr. Deepa and Prof. Durairajan’s co-authored chapter charts the wash-forwards gained by the teacher authors who learnt through assessment in the process of teaching an online English language proficiency course that was offered to adult students in mainstream higher education classrooms. Though the primary context was the online teaching context during Covid-19, the implications are for regular offline and post-Covid classrooms.
