The Australian IST Vocational Education International Teacher Qualification Certificate international Assessor online training is over.Looking back at the three-week online course, I want to sum up my learning experience from an emotional and rational perspective.
First of all, it is new and novel to receive online overseas training for the first time.In the assessment process, the assessment objects are fair, just and humanized, both comprehensive and targeted. The establishment of assessment standards is scientific and provides warm care for different assessment objects.Therefore, in the assessment process, the appraiser should uphold fairness and justice and have a human concern for the assessment object. The appraiser should not only assess the assessment object through the assessment result, but also comprehensively assess the situation of skill mastery through the effective and real evidence provided by the assessment object.This assessment is more comprehensive and three-dimensional, I personally think is very good.
Secondly, from a rational point of view, this training brings me the inspiration of educational philosophy.In the future, my class needs to collect more evidence of students’ learning and assess their mastery of the skills, technologies and knowledge taught in the class.Classroom assessment is transformed into classroom assessment, which will lead me to think about the problems of classroom reform.
Third, if want to undertake such classroom reform, will let me to understand the enterprise industry jobs, technical requirements and standard of skill to master to the student, also can let me actively involved in the industry, especially in the development of the enterprise, as an insider to observe and investigate the requirement of the enterprise in the industry post ability, as well as their internal logical structure.
Finally, this set of evaluator template is worthy of our good study and internalization, into the ability of vocational education front-line teachers.
This training is just a beginning, just like learning has no end, the Australian vocational assessment system and standards are worth thinking about and applying.The final result should be reflected in the technical skills of our students, reflected in our teaching results.
Thank you for this training opportunity, thank you to the teachers of Melbourne Institute of Technology, thank you to the organizers, thank you to the school!
