Professional Learning at AISA
AISA's vision for Professional Learning is to deliver a world-class professional development programme to international school teachers, leaders and co-professionals across the African continent.
We value the expertise and vision of professional learning leaders in our schools and actively seek their views on need, mode of delivery, recommended facilitators and implementation at school. The AISA Annual Professional Learning Needs Survey is distributed to all educators in September, the results of which inform priorities for professional learning over the following 18 months. This information is compared with the AISA School Priorities for Professional Learning Survey, sent to the PL Coordinators in schools in in October of each year. Together, these needs assessment tools give direction to the AISA PL Programme for the coming year.
The AISA Professional Learning Design Team (PLDT), formed of professional learning leaders across AISA member schools, drives the development our professional learning programme. Informed by current research and understanding of best practices, the PLDT works to ensure that AISA's professional learning programme for educators is needs-based, challenging and differentiated.
The core purposes of the PLDT are:
Both the Professional Learning Design Team and the Professional Learning Advisory are keen to hear suggestions from AISA member-schools about how to expand and further improve the professional learning experiences we off. Suggestions should be sent to Graham Watts, AISA Director of Professional Learning.
