AIS Staff Undergo World-Class Professional Development Training

Published by

Have you ever wondered what happens during Staff Professional Development Days? This week, our teachers from all parts of the School are continuing their professional learning journeys with visits from four world-renowned educational consultants. These programs will directly increase our ability to help all students realise their potential. By investing in our staff we are investing in the quality of teaching and learning and enhancing our students experience. 

  • Professor Peter Sullivan was the author of the paper that outlines the principles for the development of the Australian Curriculum in Mathematics. This eminent academic has been continuing his work with the Early Years and Elementary School Learning Enrichment Team to introduce a new model of mathematics intervention aimed at preparing students to productively engage in their lessons. He is also working with the wider teaching team to support the development of an inquiry approach to the teaching of mathematics.
  • Tania Lattanzio is an experienced international educator who works as a consultant extensively in Asia Pacific and other parts of the world. She joins us in 2017 to further develop our Early Years and Elementary School teachers’ understanding of conceptual learning and inquiry.
  • In the Elementary School, Dr Sarah Whyte will work with classroom teachers to broaden their understanding of 'Third Culture Kids' and how best to support them through periods of transition. 
  • Within the Secondary School, the professional development focus for 2017 is 'Building Inclusive Classrooms', with a focus on supporting EAL and Learning Enrichment students. To start this for the year, the team is welcoming Dr Virginia Rojas, an educational consultant who has worked with more than 200 international schools across the world. She will be working with the Secondary School teachers to design high-challenge, high-support learning experiences to simultaneously strengthen English language proficiency and academic achievement.
  • Fostering professional growth at AIS is central to improving student learning outcomes and it is an essential part of the learning journeys that take place every day at the School.

Australian International School, Singapore

The Australian International School is the only southern-hemisphere school in Singapore that offers an Australian curriculum-based global education for students from the age of 2 months to 18 years.

This truly international education begins with the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Program (IB PYP) from Preschool to Year 5, Australian Curriculum for Years 6 to 8, Cambridge IGCSE in Years 9 and 10, and the Higher School Certificate (HSC) or International Baccalaureate Diploma Program (IB DP) for Years 11 and 12.

Australian International School has a vision to be known internationally as an institution which represents educational excellence in all aspects of its operation. Our school philosophy commits us fully to the notion of a holistic, rounded education, which cherishes the arts and sports as well as academics as essential dimensions of each student’s education. We are equally committed to teaching our students to have a moral commitment to making our world a better place as reflective, caring, knowledgeable and principled people. At AIS, each child is special, each is important.
