Darlene Fisher has just been awarded one of the very prestigious Jeff Thompson Research Awards.

Darlene Fisher has just been awarded one of the very prestigious Jeff Thompson Research Awards, by the IB.  This will enable her to evaluate the effectiveness of the leadership training that the IB offers for aspiring heads of school, as part of its Professional Development (PD) programme. The development of PD for heads of school and aspiring leaders has been a recent focus of the IB and is an important way for the IB to support the growth of international schools and effective leadership in our fast changing world. This research will support the most effective development of the PD and ensure all school leaders have access to information and skills training which will help them work with their diverse communities, respecting, encouraging and enabling intercultural understanding.

This work is a focus of AIE and will be explored in our upcoming conference in Amsterdam in October.
