Stephen Moore presents seminars on professional development in Vietnam
Stephen Moore recently returned from two weeks in Vietnam where he was busy with ‘internationalisation’ duties giving professional development seminars in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City. The Hanoi visit was facilitated by Dr MyTruong, a recent PhD graduate from our Linguistics Department. She helped arrange seminars at Hanoi University (her home institution), Hanoi University of Industry, and University of Languages and International Studies. The seminar topics included ‘A review of Qualitative Research Methods’, ‘How to get published in TESOL’, ‘What matters in ESP besides specialised vocabulary’, and ‘Developing a “research culture” in ELT in Vietnam’. In HCMC, the seminar was given at International University, (Vietnam National University, HCM) and the topic was ‘A critical language testing case study: The “fascinating” life of a research project’. IU recently agreed a pathway articulating from its Bachelor of English into our new Bachelor of Linguistics and Language Sciences degree. We hope many Vietnamese undergraduates will follow this pathway into our Linguistics programs.
