KSIF Retrains Teachers Sent Abroad in 2021 1H
One-on-one consulting with a Korean language education expert to strengthen practical capabilities to
run online classes
Participation possible in the retraining program despite time differences and full-time work schedules
The King Sejong Institute Foundation (KSIF) administered a retraining program to help teachers sent abroad to further develop their
professional expertise and skills.
KSIF announced that it had retrained its teachers working at KSI locations worldwide from January to February in order to help them improve their online teaching skills.
The retraining program consisted of training on how to use the Online King Sejong Institute, plan online cultural events and cultural education programs, and run online writing classes and online cultural activities. In addition to arming teachers with the skills they need to host online classes, KSIF also offered one-on-one consulting with experts in Korean language education.
Staff Lee Sandeul, who was in charge of the retraining program, said “The retraining program was administered online, and many of the teachers working abroad had to receive training at the same time as working full-time job schedules. Despite considerable time differences [between Korea and their current locations], they were very eager to participate. [···] We will continue to provide the kind of training that will provide teachers with practical assistance to help them do their jobs better.”
