Accreditation Training for Schools

Tim Thompson | Associate Regional Director for International Schools, ACSI REACH 2019 is the current version of the REACH accreditation protocol. From application through the implementation of the school improvement plan, the accreditation process is better structured and better organized. This course will look at the accreditation process from the school’s perspective. Standards and indicators have been adjusted and manuals have been revised. The process is more collaborative and there's more emphasis on analysis of data. There is a new survey requirement and a new student assessment requirement. The whole process from application through the implementation of the school improvement plan is better structured and better organized. Plus, ACSI now has an ePlatform for REACH-both for schools and teams. You will be able to have hands-on training in using this new tool. Be sure to bring your computer or tablet. Every accredited school with team visits coming up within the next 2-3 years needs to send someone to this course.

Accreditation Training for Team Members and Team Chairs


4/1/2020 9:00 AM   Thru   4/1/2020 4:00 PM

Tim Thompson | Associate Regional Director for International Schools, ACSI REACH 2019 is the current version of the REACH accreditation protocol. From application through the implementation of the school improvement plan, the accreditation process is better structured and better organized. This course will look at the accreditation process from team members' and the team chair's perspective. We'll take a step-by-step approach to serving on an ACSI accreditation team and what that involves. There will be an emphasis on pre-visit activities, what happens during a visit, what are team members' responsibilities, and what may need to be concluded after the actual team visit. We'll also discuss REACH 2019 and some of the key aspects of the protocol, including data analysis, surveys, and new expectations. REACH has a totally new set of supporting documents for teams that we'll look at. Plus, we'll explore the ACSI ePlatform for REACH, and you will be able to have hands-on training in using this new tool. Be sure to bring your computer or tablet. Prospective team members and chairs need to attend this course.

Biblical Integration


4/1/2020 9:00 AM   Thru   4/1/2020 4:00 PM

Debbie MacCullough | Higher Education Consultant, ACSI Global This one-day pre-conference course offers an overview of a worldview approach to Biblical Integration. It is designed to help the Christian educator develop a practical foundation for teaching students from an authentically Christian perspective. The course begins with a summary of what is meant by “worldview” and how our worldview impacts our teaching. Next, participants will examine their own worldview and compare this to a biblical one. For the majority of the session, an approach and tool for helping students to examine their own worldview in the context of their academic learning is presented. This tool and training will assist the classroom teacher in using the content they teach to help students develop a distinctly biblical worldview and an apologetic for their faith. It is designed to be used in schools that reach both Christian and non-Christian students. Bring a unit of study that will be taught in the near future with which to work during the sessions. The end product will be the unit prepared to help students in developing their biblical worldview within the context of the academic content.

Instructional Technology in the Classroom: Unleashing the HyperDoc!!


4/1/2020 9:00 AM   Thru   4/1/2020 4:00 PM

Sandra Paetkau | Founder, The Total Techover Do you want to integrate technology in your classroom but not sure where to start? Do you have questions about how technology fits in with a Biblical worldview? Do you want to know and understand the pedagogy behind effective technology integration but do not have the time to explore, weed through, and assimilate the vast amount of information out there? Then this in-service training session is for you! (suitable for teachers of grades 2 - 12) HyperDocs* are a fantastic place to start when considering revamping existing lesson and unit plans to integrate technology in the classroom. Our time together will provide opportunity to not only explore briefly the pedagogical underpinnings of effective technology integration in the classroom, but will also provide opportunity to begin building a HyperDoc yourself. If you’re already familiar with HyperDocs and have been using them in your classroom, fantastic! Come prepared to share your tips and tricks as well as pick up a few more! Let’s share our knowledge. WHAT YOU’LL NEED: Laptop or iPad (tablet) Access to internet on all devices Google account (if your school uses Office 365—no problem! But you’ll still need to have a Google account to access the day’s materials) A lesson or unit plan you’d like to rework to integrate technology A courageous and creative mindset *HyperDocs are digital frameworks on which to build lesson or unit plans to foster the effective integration of technology. They are geared to be student centred and can be used by any grade level or subject content. HyperDocs were created by Lisa Highfill, Kelly Hilton, and Sarah Landis and their ideas are used with permission.

International Summit on Biblical Instruction and Christian Formation Practices


4/1/2020 9:00 AM   Thru   4/1/2020 4:00 PM

Roslyn Barnes | Consultant, ACSI Europe Join the Conversation! Calling Bible instructors, school chaplains, heads of school, principals and curriculum directors to participate in an invigorating day of dialogue, sharing of ideas, networking, and brainstorming solutions surrounding best practice in Bible instruction and spiritual formation in international Christian schools. This unique ICEC PreConference course originated out of a similar gathering with leaders from 17 influential international Christian schools in December 2017 at Black Forest Academy. Two full days were spent considering what is and is not working in our Bible instruction and spiritual formation practices in the international school context. The gathering was incredibly meaningful, but it created a thirst for deeper dialogue and continuing the conversation on a larger scale. This year's forum will include best practices in biblical instruction and Christian formation, dealing with the unique challenges of the international school setting, and creating a school culture that supports living faith in staff and students. Participants will be encouraged to share what they've experienced in their unique contexts, and the format will be highly interactive and collaborative. An online interest page will be created on the new ACSI Community Forum to keep the dialogue moving. Join us in seeking God's direction for how to cultivate authentic transformation at our schools.
