ELT Workshops and Alumni Reception for the Master of Arts in Applied Linguistics Program
SEAMEO RETRAC, in collaboration with Curtin University, hosted two ELT Workshops and a reception for Master of Arts in Applied Linguistics alumni on November 15, 2022. The ELT workshops focused on two main topics: (1) Peer Interaction by Professor Rhonda Oliver from Curtin University, Australia, and (2) Becoming ESL Qualitative Researchers by Dr. Nur Sofurah Mohd Faiz, Dr. Maziana Mohamed, and Dr. Anizam Mohamed Yusof from Faculty of Technical and Vocational Education, Universiti Tun Hussein Onn Malaysia, Malaysia. This provided an opportunity for approximately 30 participants to connect with the university and with one another, as well as to stay current on the development of the university, the program, and the profession.
The Alumni Reception was held at the Palace Saigon Hotel in the evening of the same day. Around 70 MA alumni from the first and most recent intakes, as well as program lecturers, attended the reception. The alumni came from various provinces in Vietnam. The goal of this event was to keep the University and graduates connected while also strengthening the network among graduates. The graduates also shared their experiences, success stories, and professional development at the reception. This was an excellent opportunity for Curtin University and SEAMEO RETRAC to hear alumni stories and provide constructive feedback on the training programs.
