Carlene Hamley and Kasey Burns at ECIS

Shekou International School (SIS) has long been committed to challenging, authentic, and personalized student learning. Located in Shenzhen, China, this ISS School is also a 21st Century Learning and Apple Distinguished School. SIS has an inquiry-based curriculum and pedagogical approach designed to nurture each child’s curiosity, and intentionally designed classrooms to facilitate daily exploration.
 

Several years ago, under the direction of Carlene Hamley (Director of Learning) and Kasey Burns (Director of the Early Childhood Center) the School adopted a similar approach to faculty and staff learning. Rather than rely on visiting experts, they identified the strengths and expertise of faculty and staff, as well as their learning needs, and organized a schedule of workshops that leveraged the School’s internal resources and addressed their particular learning priorities.
