e-Time: AISA Webinar Series

AISA is pleased to be introducing a webinar series, e-Time – a play on the theme of ‘me’ time and ‘e’ (electronically) enabled learning time. These webinars will cover a range of topics aimed at providing AISA educators with current thinking and best practice in international education. It is also designed to provide another platform to help our community better connect and engage with each other. 

Webinars will take the format of an interview with a subject matter expert and will provide you with the opportunity to ask any relevant questions from the comfort of your staffroom or classroom.

e Time will take place on the last Wednesday of the Month at the following times:

  • GMT    16:00
  • WAT    17:00
  • CAT     18:00

Expanding Educational Opportunities with Accredited Virtual School Courses

Schools are under increasing pressure to offer the widest possible range of courses to satisfy the needs of parents and students. Recruiting and retaining highly-qualified teaching staff is challenging, particularly in specialized subjects and curricula. The option of Virtual School Courses with qualified teachers online offers a solution to this problem, but comes with specific challenges. This webinar will explore the developing market for Virtual School Courses and present a range of implementation models from different schools around the world.

Caring for Students Experiencing Distress

Register Here 

The rise of young people experiencing mental health issues has been well documented. Ask any teacher or school counsellor and they will attest to the growing number of students struggling with emotional regulation issues such as depression and anxiety. The World Health Organisation (WHO) estimates that worldwide, 10-20% of children and adolescents experience mental disorders, with half of all mental health illnesses beginning by the age of 14. If untreated, these conditions severely influence children’s development, their educational attainment and potential to live fulfilling and productive lives (WHO, 2018).

In this webinar, AISA chats with Sean about how schools can provide effective support for students struggling with their mental health and what schools can do to help students develop mindsets and resiliency to promote positive well-being.
