Co-teaching: #ISSedu Twitter Chat

Co-teaching involves building strong multi-teacher collaborative relationships that support and leverage the capabilities of learners with intentionality. We were thrilled to explore the topic at the April #ISSedu Twitter Chat:

We're still thanking Nicky Bourgeois (PYP teacher at NIST International School in Bangkok) for her help coordinating this conversation! A strong believer in developing shared pedagogy, Nicky views her students as competent, creative, and curious learners, and draws on her extensive classroom experience to also support international educators in their professional learning. We're grateful for her help brainstorming the questions, her engagement and support of other international educators during the chat, and all the great work she continues to do in international education. 

As with every archive of these #ISSedu chats, we wish we could include every post and thread everyone shared. Still, we think this co-created resource of highlights from the chat give a great little window into the wisdom and encouragement shared. Enjoy!
