Continuing Education for Teachers of English as a Second or Additional Language
(Haiku Science Academy) The most respected professions in the world require their practitioners to participate in continuing education on a periodic basis. One reason is because many of these skill-sets are undergoing innovations, improvements, or other changes on a continual basis.
Among these professions are Physicians, or Medical Doctors (MDs) who require Continuing Medical Education (CME); Clinical Hypnotists who obtain Continuing Education Units (CEUs); Psychologists who earn Continuing Education Credits (CECs); and Chemists who participate in Continuing Education (CE).
Not in the least, Educators all over the world are also required to participate in Continuing Education Units in order to maintain the validity of their teaching credentials.
Here, I not only suggest, but insist that teachers of TEFL, TESOL, ESL, and the like, should no less be obligated to earn continuing education credits to uphold their credibility as viable English Language Educators.
The following four titles are offered through Haiku Science Academy as Continuing Education Resources for Teachers of English as a Second or Additional Language.
Resources for Second and Additional Language Teachers (SALT)
The information is offered as free resources that can be used for one’s own enrichment.
To be awarded a Certification of Completion by Haiku Science Academy, each candidate must submit a written summary in their own words to demonstrate their understanding of the material, a video presentation of no less than 3-minutes expounding the same comprehension, and pay the examination fee.
The video component is included as a requirement so that the candidate has the opportunity to exhibit their ability as a lecturer, and speaker.
Someone cannot reasonably doubt that you are a great teacher of some thing, when you can provide them with evidence that shows you in action, successfully doing the thing that they are considering to hire you to do.Obtaining Teaching Credentials Through Documentaries; Hakeem Ali-Bocas Alexander 2018, April 27th
