On the morning of September 9, 2022, the delegation of Van Lang University attended the National Scientific Workshop co-organized by the Journal of Education – Ministry of Education and Training (MOET) and Dong Thap University. The workshop is co-chaired by Prof. Dr. Nguyen Thi My Loc, Chairman of the Council of Education, the State Council for Professorship and Assoc. Prof. Dr. Nguyen Van De, Chairman of the Science and Training Council of Dong Thap University.
Prof. Dr. Nguyen Thi My Loc discussed at the Workshop.
The Workshop attracted nearly 300 educational managers, scientists, lecturers, PhD candidates, graduate students, teachers, etc. at universities, research institutes, education and training departments, and high schools to share experiences, visions and opinions on practices, policies related to teacher training and development.
Some participants took photos at the Workshop.
This is a forum for scientists and experts to exchange and share experiences on teacher training in the context of curriculum and textbook innovation.
The research team of Van Lang University attended the Workshop and presented research results on the quality of university-level teacher training programs in the country from the perspective of quality accreditation results. The abstract of this research work (below) was published in the Proceedings of the Workshop.
“Accreditation in Vietnamese higher education has been officially implemented for 20 years with obligatory regulation for all institutions and programs. This study focuses on investigating the quality of undergraduate teacher training programs from accreditation results. The results show that among 76 accredited undergraduate teacher training programs, only one program met 96% and seven programs met 94% of the accreditation criteria. While three programs met 80% of the criteria – the minimum requirement. Among 50 criteria, 27 criteria received an average score under 4.0. Four criteria receiving the lowest average scores are the clarity in the contribution of each course to achieve the learning outcomes, the availability of the library and learning materials, the clear definitions of learning outcomes, and the diversity, validity and reliability of the methods measuring the learning outcomes. Consequently, to ensure quality, higher education institutions offering teacher training programs need to focus on determining clearly the contribution of each course to achieve the program learning outcomes, defining clearly the program learning outcomes, ensuring the validity, reliability, and fairness of learning outcomes measurement methods and ensuring the relevant and up-to-date learning resources”.
This research’s results will contribute to the theoretical basis for further innovations in teacher training and retraining practices, in order to make recommendations to the MOET on policy issues related to teacher training and retraining.
