This formative assessment course is designed to be an interactive virtual classroom experience for teachers. The course will be run asynchronously using Canvas and Zoom as the platforms. The six-week course is designed to engage teachers who have both limited and high levels of education on formative assessment. Participants will involve participant presentations showcasing how they may utilize formative assessment through lesson plans. Each class will be structured to incorporate formative assessments to help build understanding on how they may be used. Teachers who attend and participate in each class will receive a certificate of completion.
The course will be instructed by Leah Passauer who has her M.A. in International Education and completed her TEFL Certificate in 2016. Leah currently works as a Virtual English Language Fellow out of Washington D.C. and is eager to engage teachers in Vietnam around the topic of formative assessment. Leah has previously worked as an English Language Fellow at Hue University, Education Program Manager in Burundi, English Teaching Coordinator in Madagascar, English Teaching Fellow in Palestine, and University English Teacher in China. She is passionate about cultivating learner-centered classrooms and developing strategies to ensure students receive consistent feedback. The formative assessment course is developed based off of a workshop that Leah developed for VietTESOL 2019 and is an expanded in-depth version of the original workshop.
The course is expected to last for 6 weeks from July 6th, 2020 to 15th 2020. In addition, selected candidates will be divided into 2 groups: one group for K12-teachers, the other for college teachers. The maximum number of participants for each group is not more than 25.
The fee for this course is 1,000,000 VND but half of the fee will be reimbursed after the course if the participants show their strong commitment to follow the course and fully attend it.
