Learning Design and Teaching for International Educators
November 13 - 27, 2021 
 

 


Planning and teaching programmes in international contexts is a complex art and science.  It is learning design par excellence.  We seek to find alignment between our schools’ beliefs and culture, our wider community’s values, the pragmatics of our departments and curriculum and our host community.  The demands are significant,  but so are the rewards and excitement.   Too often we can ‘import’ what we already know in the hope that it works or no one notices (they always do).  We have all seen the teacher or leader who continues just like ‘back home’ or ‘in my last school’ rather than fully embracing the challenge of co-creating learning which is powerfully aligned to school culture and community, effective and flexible enough to reach learners and helps our learners to flourish. 
 
This course steps you through building awareness and exploring tools to help you build your competency to create lessons, units and programmes which are powerful and congruent with your context.
