Description

An essential guide to teaching and learning in international schools for pre- and in-service educators around the world.

With more and more teachers working in international schools, this book provides a practical and accessible examination of effective pedagogy in this specific context.  Using case studies that can be applied in a range of settings, it explores key areas of classroom practice such as collaboration and student agency, along with emergent approaches such as play-based, concept-based and enquiry-based teaching and learning. In addition, it gazes towards students’ future needs, exploring themes such as new literacies and intercultural competence. 

“The thoughtful questions posed throughout the text have the potential to guide some important conversations and prompt positive, professional growth.” Kath Murdoch, Seastar Education Consulting

“This is a text that is much needed in national and international education.” Malcolm Nicolson, Director Erimus Education

“Modelling the power and value of collaboration, a cohort of very accomplished educators with international experience have united to share numerous practical examples to support effective teaching and learning." Dr Jennifer Chang Wathall, independent education consultant

"...connects readers to new or different researchers beyond what is shared in IB publications, therefore widening the research base and highlighting new strategies to help educators keen to innovate in their practice.” Sandy Paton, PYP Educator and independent consultant

Your Reviews on this book

"It is very rare to find an educational text that leads the reader from principles into practice. Teaching and Learning in International Schools does exactly that, and in a style that brings you along on a journey rather than intimidating with jargon and theory. Each chapter contains relevant and rich content that takes us through a wide range of ideas around teaching practice, pedagogy and teacher skill development….The 'teacher voice' is strong and brings the theory into real-life, makes it more authentic and gives confidence to the reader that we can do it too!.....This is a text that is much needed in national and international education.

Malcolm Nicolson Director Erimus Education, and International Educator

"This book is a welcome contribution to the resources available not only to those who wish to pursue a career in International Education but to any beginning teacher or those simply wanting to refresh their thinking about how to apply contemporary practices to the classroom...I am sure there will be much in this collection that will resonate with International Educators.  The thoughtful questions posed throughout the text have the potential to guide some important conversations and prompt positive, professional growth."
