ACAMIS Conference: Roles, responsibilities and the essential tools for student activity implementation

Target Audience: Extra Curricular Activity Coordinators/Leadership and Service Coordinators/Heads of Department/Director of Sport

Student learning outside of the curriculum creates opportunities for enhanced learning and are in most cases the most memorable experiences for students during their schooling. Designing and implementing a program that is effective, measurable over time and develops social and leadership skills while being aligned to an organizations educational philosophy takes creativity, reflection and support from stakeholders. Implementing a program that endeavors to scaffold curriculum learning while tapping into the extraordinary benefits of external learning requires an understanding of how to take advantage of the open ‘living’ systems unique to each school. Ensuring administrative departments, faculty heads, parents, external partners are in lock-step with you will ensure the student experience is appropriately challenging and memorable.

This 2-day workshop will be split into the following themes:

Day 1 - Tapping the power of extra-curricular activities. Understanding our role, stakeholder expectations within a school context and ensuring child safeguarding and risk mitigation practices are enforced to allow students to have memorable experiences.

Day 2 – Developing student leadership while understanding cultural sensitivities. Real examples of implementation of IT to manage programs successfully.
