The International School of Myanmar began the year online. Finding effective remote teaching strategies was a professional development need that our teaching staff desired and requested to assist them with delivering effective learning to our students online. Tom Driscoll tailored his professional development program to fit the needs of our school, utilized in-house expertise from our staff, and built upon our current program and resources to provide us with practical, efficient, and effective approaches in delivering Project-Based Learning remotely. His training is proving to be not only useful and needed while conducting online learning but will continue to further our program as we move to hybrid and face to face to learning.

These sessions have been some of the best professional learning I’ve had in my twenty-three years in education. (EKC) understands hardworking teachers, the constraints of international school schedules and the necessity of differentiation, and the workshops keep all learners in mind. I know that after a course, I feel inspired and have ready-to-use tools and strategies to apply right away.
The course provided me with the momentum, insight and resources I needed to take action on incorporating Service Learning not only into my own courses, but schoolwide. The instructors are very knowledgeable and eager to help. They pushed my thinking and posed great questions to consider as I continue this journey. I walked away with a wealth of ideas, resources and created a full Service Learning unit that’s ready to be implemented in the fall! All in all, it was a very worthwhile 5-days if you are trying to improve your personal teaching practice and improve your school’s capacity to deliver a 21st-century educational program.
Kyle was very organized and thoughtful in his delivery, had a very strong knowledge in the area, and was very supportive for those who are new to project-based learning, or already had a very good knowledge of the approach. Kyle had excellent follow up, checked in with us and answered all our questions. And now our teachers have the confidence to try this approach in their classrooms, and this is having a great impact on learning here at BCIS.
I have never seen professional learning have such a huge impact. These courses are also the best value I’ve seen in at least a decade.

We used VHS learning to help coordinate our distance learning plan. We had a series of teacher “champions” take the 4 week courses and another group of “advocates” follow the webinar series. These teachers grew as practitioners and were able to put student and teacher voice into our plan. Each champion presented a section of their course and essential agreements around best practices within our school context were established. VHS were extremely helpful and flexible and this PD was exceptional value for money.
Deidre led a very successful biennial governance training session for the Board and Council of St Michael’s International School, Kobe in February 2018. With very little time to prepare, she grasped the ethos and spirit of the School. Her understanding of the journey we have made in the past decade and our present concerns resulted in a day of learning well tailored to our current situation. Not only did Deidre meet all the objectives she had been asked to address, she did so in a style that engaged all the participants and which they all enjoyed. Feedback from members was unanimously positive, one saying it was the best training session she’d attended. The variety of activities aided in keeping attention during a long day; as a result, enthusiasm didn’t flag throughout. The training was particularly useful at a period of change in governance of the School. It allowed newer and perhaps shyer members of the Council to express their views and develop confidence in their ability to benefit the governance of the School. Deidre’s comments on the governance of the School were very reassuring and it was most helpful to be shown we have already taken many of the necessary steps to tackle issues on our agenda in the coming months. We wholeheartedly recommend Deidre as a governance trainer and would be happy to have her back for future sessions at St Michael’s.
