20201016T0925 20201016T1025 Asia/Ho_Chi_Minh FEATURED SPEECH (SPONSORED BY ULIS): Developing an In-Service Training Program to Inspire Language Teachers as Educators

This speech reports on an initiative to innovate the in-service training activities at the university level. The theoretical and empirical studies underlying this program includes Design Thinking which has been widely applied at various international universities; the Active Citizen and Social Enterprises training program by the British Council; and the Initiative, Innovation and Creativity in Education systems by Israeli Gordon University. The program is designed to help university language teachers to first of all identify themselves, their own strengths and potentials, as well as their core values. Then, the teachers learn to build a community of practice through personal and professional empathy and connection with others. In the last module of the program, the teachers leverage their collaboration and problem-solving skills to explore their transformational leadership capacity, and how to apply that in their teaching to inspire their students to strive above and beyond restrictions. The program is conducted in an interactive and task-based format in which young and inexperienced teachers team up with senior ones, together they learn through experiences, reflections and conceptualization. The speaker will also share the feedback of the participants at the end of their short but meaningful journey to germinate their "inspiring educator" identity.
