AISA Conferences offer a unique opportunity for international school leaders and educators to come together for a few days of deep learning, networking and inspiration. They will challenge your thinking and inform your practice, helping to take your school to the next level.
AISA Invitational Conference
7th - 8th March 2020
Brookhouse School (Runda Campus), Kenya
Schools today need to prepare students for a future we can't yet imagine. Your students are future leaders who will invent technologies we don’t yet know we need, work in jobs that don't yet exist and solve problems they did not create. The world will seem a much smaller place to them as they work for global companies, moving in and out of many cultures and work with people who are different to themselves. As educators we must prepare our students to be globally competent learners, leaders and citizens who will succeed in the future.
The AISA Invitational Conference is for teachers and school leaders who are committed to developing students who will become highly competent international professionals, scholars and leaders . All the workshops are led by expert-practitioners from Kenya, the USA, UK, all teaching at accredited International Schools in Nairobi. These practitioners work in international schools where global competence is at the heart of all the teaching and learning and where students are being prepared to take their places in a globalised, fast moving world. Who better to learn from as you consider how to make sure your students are ahead of the pack.

AISA School Heads Retreat
SAVE THE DATE:
Park Hyatt, Zanzibar
Join us for the AISA School Heads’ Retreat in beautiful Zanzibar where we create a relaxing and rejuvenating experience for Heads with opportunities for conversation, networking, peer to peer learning and collaboration.
Our School Heads Retreat (SHR) programme is designed as an opportunity for heads of school to learn from each other, to network, to share and reflect on their own expertise in a facilitated and productive way. This year we have added a focus on wellbeing and semi-structured time for informal conversations between peers. For heads new to Africa, it will be a chance to get to know their colleagues and experience first-hand the collegial and generous spirit that characterizes the AISA region. All of this will happen in the fascinating surrounds of Zanzibar where there will be ample time to relax and explore as well.

1. Engage in informal conversations and discussions with other Heads in our region to build professional networks, connections and peer support
2. Discuss questions, issues and challenges from your professional practice and seek advice from your peers in Collaborative Enquiry workshops
