Promoting excellence in teaching, both on 3 campuses and more broadly, is a fundamental goal of the AEBS.
The effort to establish a Professional Development Centre by the Founder (PDC) at each location is one of the outstanding features of the network. The PDC aims to strengthen the profession of teaching in the region by providing substantial professional learning opportunities and modeling highly effective educational practice.
Developing Strength in Teaching
The Academies aim to identify and develop teachers of the highest quality who are committed to both the all-round development of young people and to their own professional excellence. AEBS provided excellent support by striving to model best practices in teaching and learning within all of its classes and by providing high quality development opportunities for all Academy teachers.
Faculty members are also enriched by opportunities to work collaboratively with more experienced colleagues from around the globe and to teach abroad within the IB, Reggio Emilia, and NAEYC Academies network.
Each programme builds professional competence by focusing equally on enhancing teachers’ integrated subjects knowledge and on how best to teach trans disciplinarily . Each provides participants with a balance of intensive facilitated learning experiences followed by an extended period of assisted application and observation within the context of their own classrooms.
