Professional Learning Institutes

AISA is excited to be expanding our professional learning options for teachers across the continent. In addition to our annual conference for educators (October 2016) and the launch of a separate conference focused on all aspects of leadership (March 2016), AISA is for the first time offering a number of professional learning opportunities throughout the school year. These focused, high impact Professional Learning Institutes (PLIs), facilitated by leading international experts, are based on our members needs and address the unique qualities of teaching and learning in international school settings.  In addition to Institutes for educators we are pleased to announce a range of Institutes for co-professionals working in schools such as HR Managers, Science Technicians, Executive Assistants and others whose efforts improve school effectiveness. Each Institute will take a specific focus and explore it in depth to provide a deep learning experience, powerful enough for participants to go back to their school and implement what they have learnt. PLI’s will take place across the continent and can be repeated in different regions to meet demand.

To ensure we meet a diverse range of needs, we are differentiating our Institutes in order to help teachers decide if it will provide an appropriate level of challenge. An Institute may be aimed at one level in its entirety or may have both levels running concurrently at the same Institute. The two levels are:

Discover and Explore – an introductory level where little prior experience, study or expertise is expected or required.

Embed and Sustain – an advanced level where clear entry requirements are set out and will be verified before registration is confirmed. These entry requirement may include prior study, prior experienced evidenced by students work sample, prior professional leaning evidenced by certification.

In the 2015/16 school year AISA will be offering no less than 14 institutes. Detailed information on each institute is available below. Registrations opening in early August!

If you have any queries about the PLIs please feel free to contact us at info@aisa.or.ke
