Scots Online Elicos Teaching Initiative (SOETI)

Scots Launches SOETI On April 14!

WHAT IS SOETI?

SCOTS Online ELICOS Teaching Initiative

WHY SOETI?

The Australian government has imposed social distancing restrictions to stop the spread of the Coronavirus. Many Coronavirus cases are found in travelers. So, teaching English on campus has become a tremendous risk for both students and staff at SCOTS.

SOETI is a clever solution to a rare problem that neither Australia nor the world has ever faced before. The Virus has brought the country to a FREEZE! And SOETI wants to make sure your life does not FREEZE with it.

WHAT THIS MEANS TO YOU

You will continue studying English ONLINE. Teaching online is VERY different from teaching on campus. We have made some changes to make it work better for you during these difficult times.  Of course, a change in methodology needs a change in the timetable.

ABOUT THE EXTRA OPTIONAL CLASSES

Now only available on Friday, the optional classes only focus on teaching you how to speak English like a native speaker using the BBR method. Please log onto Moodle on Friday at the times specified below and go to ESLAN POWER CLASS and join the Zoom class.

Notes:

Attendance: Because of the coronavirus situation, only until we return to campus, attending 1 zoom session and completing the 2-hour online activities is satisfactory or equivalent to 100%, but we strongly recommend you attend both sessions, AM and PM.

The AM and PM sessions are NOT replicates (no repeat). They may share the same focus and sometimes review or revisit similar content, but are NOT identical.

WHAT TEACHER-SUPPORTED SELF-STUDY EXACTLY IS

Every day, Monday to Friday, you MUST complete activities created by your teacher on Moodle.

Macro-skill activity

A Macro-skill activity is an activity that focuses on Writing, Reading, Listening OR speaking. Every day, you will focus on one macro-skill only. Every Friday, you have a mini assessment, and every month, you have a major (big) assessment.

Knowledge-based activity

A knowledge-based activity is an activity that focuses on Grammar, Vocabulary or Pronunciation. Every day, you will focus on one knowledge-based activity. Every Thursday, you review all knowledge-based activities.

WHEN YOU WILL BE RETURNING TO FACE-TO-FACE TEACHING CAMPUS

It is still UNCLEAR when the Australian government will start to ease its strict social distancing restrictions in response to the COVID-19. SCOTS is following all government updates and announcements in relation to the Coronavirus developments very closely. We will re-open the campus when the government’s ban on social gathering is lifted and the social distancing restrictions eased. We will return to campus when we deem it legal and safe to do so.
