Another NEAS Master Practitioner for the ELT Community!

Congratulations to Dr Alexander Nanni who was recently received the prestigious NEAS Master Practitioner certificate.

NEAS Master Practitioner is unique in its kind and sets the benchmark for understanding quality assurance, using qualified research into English language teaching and demonstration of knowledge of the NEAS Quality Assurance Framework.

The course comprises a capstone project which enables the participant to apply quality assurance principles to an area of interest and specialisation. The capstone project submission may take one of several forms such as an essay, research project, an experiential work or a multimedia presentation.

Alexander submitted a research report titled ‘Characteristics of Effective English Language Teachers: Students’ and Teachers’ Views’. The report outlined an investigation aimed at improving the quality of the English courses offered by the Preparation Center for Languages and Mathematics at Mahidol University International College, Thailand. The project investigated students’ and teachers’ beliefs about the characteristics of an effective language teacher.

Master Practitioners not only demonstrate their understanding of Quality Assurance in ELT but can become quality ambassadors for their Centre. The Master Practitioner capstone project can be utilised to enhance a professional’s understanding of their work and centre, bringing about benefits for the organisation, staff and students.

Well done Alexander!
