Still from the first webinar in the series – with teachers representing Indonesia, Thailand and Viet Nam

To celebrate Vietnamese Teachers’ Day (20 November), the British Council in Viet Nam launched a new series of webinars, specifically designed for teachers and teacher educators in Viet Nam. 

In the first of the series, Fiona Dunlop from the Wimbledon School of English, who recently partnered with the VietTESOL Association as part of the British Council’s PRELIM project, presented a webinar entitled Accessing Meaningful CPD for Busy Teachers. In it, Fiona shared some of their experiences of PRELIM in Viet Nam before presenting practical CPD suggestions for teachers. You can still watch the recording of the first webinar here

In future months, the series will feature more webinars and presentations from British Council in Viet Nam’s three Digital Learning Innovation Fund pilot projects. These will not only present information about the projects themselves but will also include practical suggestions to support teacher professional development.

See below for registration details. These will also be recorded and uploaded on to our dedicated You Tube playlist

And don’t forget that our monthly ASEAN teacher webinar series on a range of practical topics for teachers is still continuing, with more webinars to come between January to March 2022. You can still watch the first ones here

Featuring the participation of teachers from Indonesia, Thailand and Viet Nam, during each webinar the teachers share their experiences on a range of topics. Each month, topics are chosen to parallel the MOOCs (massive open online courses) which are being offered via the Teaching English website, each MOOC typically running for four weeks. 

Topics, times and dates of the next three webinars will be shared in due course, so stay tuned. To stay informed, make sure you like or follow our Teaching English Viet Nam Facebook page.
