As active members of VietTESOL Association (VTA), U.S. alumni, and lecturers of English at Vietnamese universities with high spirits of networking, sharing and learning, we established VTA K-12 Professional Development Special Interest Group (or VTA K-12 PD SIG, in short) which primarily caters to K-12 (from kindergarten to 12th grade) teachers’ continuous professional development in English language education in Vietnam in 2020. Our motto is “Empowering Teachers, Inspiring Students & Promoting Teaching and Learning”. In tune with the overarching vision of VTA, we aim to take the lead in offering and advancing continuous professional development experiences for K-12 teachers in English language education in Vietnam. We offer interactive platforms for professional sharing, training, learning and researching among experts, professionals and researchers of English language education. We undertake the initiative with concerted efforts and collaborative, rotating leadership, which means rotating to lead the programme yearly and hosting webinar programme alternately among organising committee members. We also welcome Vietnamese practitioners and researchers who work in English language education to join us as group members, project organisers and leaders so that we, altogether, can empower teachers, inspire students and promote teaching and learning.

Since 2019, our signature initiative is The Webinar Programme for K-12 Vietnamese Teachers of English in Using New Textbook Series. The webinar programme for K-12 Vietnamese teachers of English invites featured talks from speakers who are experts of the field and holds sharings from facilitators who are exemplary K-12 Vietnamese teachers of English.
