School of Education lecturer Dr Ngoc Doan is one of just 16 people nationwide to be awarded an Australia-ASEAN Council (AAC) Grant.
Dr Doan’s project will strengthen ties between UniSA and Vietnam, bringing together more than 150 lecturers across 30 higher education institutions to enhance learning, teaching and research in English medium instruction (EMI).
Dr Doan will receive almost $50,000 towards his project, Institutional links to address issues in higher education in Vietnam.
Launched in 2015, the AAC grants aim to increase collaborations and sharing of knowledge between Australia and South-East Asia.
Dr Doan says he’s thrilled to receive the grant and excited at the opportunities it will open in English language education in Asia.
“The project gives participating university managers and lecturers opportunities to share and exchange their experiences and practices. From these exchanges, innovations for delivery of EMI programs and courses will be born,” Dr Doan says.
The project will involve a range of workshops and seminars addressing issues related to English medium instruction (EMI) and provide Vietnamese EMI lecturers and institutions with opportunities to explore alternative teaching methodologies to deliver EMI and develop English language support systems for their students.
