Alliance for International Education – World Conference, 26th-28th February 2016, Bangkok

AIE World Conference_002

AIE World Conference_001

On January 26-28, NIST will host Alliance for International Education World Conference, with the theme of ‘Engaging with Difference’. AIE is an organization promoting intercultural understanding and collaboration and is connected to Bath University through the Board Members of Jeff Thompson and Mary Hayden, who have done a lot of research and published leading books in the field. AIE is hoping to generate a lot of interest in the local practitioners in the field of international education. It would be great to have your staff present some case studies, or lesson plans how they have ‘engaged with difference’ in their schools. The presentations are only about 20 minutes so this is a great way to get your work recognized!

We are also setting up a Local Committee, that will be involved in organizing the Conference. Most of the logistical work will be done by NIST, but we would like to welcome all your expertise in publicizing the event, and encouraging student involvement, e.g. in the form of IT help, presenting some projects etc. This will not take up a lot of extra time, but will ensure that you get to attend a fantastic Conference with lots of new learning and research! If you, or anyone in your staff, are interested in acting in the Local Committee, please advice them to contact me at mruokanen@nist.ac.th. Learn more about the Conference on AIE website.

Our key note speaker has not changed. It will continue to be delivered by ‘Crossroads’ founder, David and Sally Begbie. Crossroad is an organisation of outstanding repute in the field of Corporate Social Responsibility. It is dedicated to ‘connecting people in a broken world’, by acting as a crossroads for those who need help and those who can help.

David will also lead the ‘Struggle for Survival Simulations’ where participants try to earn enough to survive and pay for rent, food, sanitation, medical needs and education. This simulates the pressures felt by many globally, and explores ways to break the web of poverty.

Additional workshop

We will continue to explore the themes of Technology, Career Advancement, Global Sustainability Issues, Primary JAWS, Secondary JAWS and Whole School JAWS. We have received a significant number of excellent application and look forward to receiving more. All applications for workshop leaders will close on Friday 29th May 2015. Successful workshop leaders will be informed in June.

Summer Camp (27 June – 8 August 2015)

D.T is also in the process of setting up a summer camp in Kanchanaburi, Thailand, where the children can enjoy all the fun expected of summer camp as well as an hour of literacy intervention by the OG tutors per day. The camp also aims to raise self-esteem and confidence in learning. We are hoping to have this ready for the upcoming summer break. More news to come…

Our mission is to increase awareness of dyslexia in South East Asia where 10 – 20% of all school populations will have students struggling to reach international standards in literacy and/or math. By increasing awareness and training we hope to develop the quality of teaching and intervention that these children receive, to reach their educational potential.
