Through this programme, Ruth is hoping to further develop her skills in international education and leadership. “It will also provide the opportunity to develop academic research that should be of benefit to our institution and to the wider academic community. This programme will help me to rethink the challenges and opportunities that teachers face in the present era of globalisation, cultural diversity and technological development.” Says Ruth.
“Teaching economics not only involves to have passion for the subject, but also to make students’ experience in the classroom more effective, active and engaging. I trust this programme will help me to bringing a fresh and innovative vision to my teaching. My aspiration is that my students should not only be active vessels to be filled by the teacher’s knowledge, but students should also be empowered to share and contribute with classroom learning.”
This innovative, part-time programme specifically designed, and only available for teachers working in Nord Anglia Education schools was developed by King's College London in association with Nord Anglia Education and started in September 2016.
“As you know we are as ambitious for our people as we are for our students. We are committed to supporting our teachers’ professional development and career aspirations because this will ensure that our students learn from the best. We hope it will build on their experience, develop their leadership skills and prepare them for unique opportunities while working in a leading education environment,” said Andrew Fitzmaurice, CEO of Nord Anglia Education.
