Looking ahead to the 2021-22 school year, AISA has developed an exciting and impactful range of professional learning (PL) experiences for our members. With uncertainty about travel restrictions and a growing appreciation of the benefits of remote learning, AISA’s PL Programme for the next semester is entirely online.

Highlights to look out for:

AISA Leadership Design Challenge, Friday 3rd and Saturday 4th Sept 2021

School leaders are invited to form a group from your leadership team and school board to undertake a design sprint to solve a challenge, overcome a problem or plan for the year ahead. This fast-paced event will be an opportunity for your school team to work together, shape your school’s future and hear how other schools in the region are tackling the issues that matter most to them. The AISA Leadership Design Challenge is a great opportunity to kick off the new school year by bringing your leaders and board members together to focus on the mission ahead.

Free to AISA Members.

AISA Wellbeing for All Practice Group, Wed 28th September 2021 and meeting fortnightly thereafter

Building on this year’s highly successful pilot, AISA is leading a Practice Group to support those implementing the NELSI wellbeing programmes for teachers in their schools. Meeting fortnightly, the Practice Group will explore how to lead the NELSI wellbeing workshops for teachers, offer ideas on how to differentiate for colleagues and review the modules as the year goes by. Feedback from the recently concluded pilot stated that participation in the Practice Group was essential for teachers, counsellors, nurses, and school leaders who were leading the NELSI programme with their peers.

Free to AISA Members

ISTE Certification, starting on Wed 20th Oct 2021

ISTE is the perfect qualification to demonstrate your competence with online and blended learning. It is considered by some to be the “gold standard” qualification for demonstrating ability in technology integration and understanding of how and when technology adds value to teaching and learning. With five synchronous workshops from Oct 2021 – Feb 2022, participants collaborate with teachers in other AISA schools before submitting their portfolio of competency-based professional growth by August 2022. This online event is organised by the International School of Tanganyika and AISA.
