NEAS Australia has led the way in improving quality assurance of online delivery for English Language Teaching since 2017, a full three years before the transformation of ELICOS to online delivery in 2020 as a result of COVID19. Drawing on benchmarking data and quality assurance experiences of more than 200 Australian and international English Language Teaching organisations from all sectors of international education, this presentation showcases how Australian ELICOS can be repurposed for Generation Alpha – our international students of the future.
Exploration into standards, qualitative and quantitative benchmarking highlight how Australian and international providers are transforming their ELICOS programs through online delivery, transnational delivery and embedding 21st Century Skills and more into their programs.
