The closing of the schools in Switzerland and around the world has changed teaching. A lot of face-to-face teaching had to be changed to remote online teaching.
To help teachers transition to this new form of teaching, which was unfamiliar to most, we introduced a series of webinars focusing on different aspects of online teaching. In addition to these webinars, we have introduced a new resource website with exclusive online teaching material that any teacher can access for free.
The Spring Seminar is back! Although not the way you were used to...
As we had to cancel this year’s Spring Seminar 2020, we did not want that to happen again. To offer this seminar to all of you safely, we have transferred the Spring Seminar to the online world. We are happy to announce that registrations are now open!
Swiss Exams has successfully launched computer-delivered IELTS in Winterthur/Zürich and in Lausanne with more locations to be added in 2021.
At the beginning of 2020, Swiss Exams and the British Council signed a strategic IELTS agreement for Switzerland. In the summer, the first IELTS pilot sessions took place and Winterthur/Zurich and Lausanne went operational during the course of the autumn. This gave Swiss Exams the time needed to establish processes and operations and gain the necessary experience to accelerate in 2021.
A year ago, we launched Swiss Exams Access and many schools make excellent use of the platform.
Here are five tips that may help you with making decisions and that will make your life easier:
If you would like to reserve seats for Computer-based exams, which are in very high demand, you can make reservations in your Swiss Exams Access account directly.
If you would like to check the payment or option status of your students in realtime, you can filter all outstanding payments of your candidates in the “All Registrations” menu.
As of November 2020, Cambridge Assessment English changed the look of the Cambridge English Qualifications certificates to improve the security and modernize the look and feel of the certificates.
Prior to this new look, Cambridge Assessment English had already updated the paper used for the certificates to a higher quality. The overall new look will therefore build on this change and update the design and enhance the security features on the certificates starting in November 2020. Updates to the Young Learners certificates will follow at a later date.
Although not a new topic, this has certainly become more relevant than ever. Online teaching, which we teachers all had to get involved with recently, has shown us that students who know how and are motivated to learn on their own are a necessity when teaching remotely and not just “nice to have.”
How do we motivate students to want to learn independently? Which traditional and which online resources are available to help us guide them and enable us to encourage them on this learning journey?
