About the Session

 

English is the official language of ASEAN. Across the region, online learning is the new normal in a COVID-19 era. How are education institutions in the ELT sector approaching the issues of Quality Assurance (QA) and Best Practice? 

 

This webinar will provide a platform to share experiences from both an ASEAN and Australian perspective, drawing on the learnings from English Language Training (ELT) institutions and quality assurance bodies.

 

This session will explore: 

 

  • How have ELT institutions been managing the challenges of online learning in a sector that has historically had face to face teaching and learning as a key feature of delivery?

 

  • How is the Digital Divide impacting on student access to online learning for ELT in ASEAN and Australia? What steps are being taken to address the challenges?

 

  • Is there an understanding and agreement emerging on what constitutes “best practice” in online learning for ELT and how is this being encouraged and evaluated?

 

  • How is the shape of QA in ELT centre management changing due to the pandemic?

 

  • What are students feeding back about their recent experience of online learning?

 

  • How is the English Language Testing ecosystem responding to COVID-19?

 

  • What will the ASEAN ELT sector look like in 2025 including the benchmarking of Teacher Qualifications as well as Professional Development?
