Our Mission calls us to continuously inquire, as well as enhance the lives of others. We strive to fulfill our mission in many innovative ways. One of them is supporting other education institutions to achieve their missions.
The American School of Bombay conducts Teacher Training Program (TTP) each year for the teachers working at our partner education NGOs and other educators connected through our vast network. Taught by teams of ASB staff, our TTP focuses on critical areas for effective teaching in the 21st century.
This year, with campus closures, our TTP has moved online. Our now Virtual TTP we have designed a model that honors the need to balance professional learning with the demands of virtual education. This model consists of ASB facilitators providing our TTPers content or provocations before a facilitated session. The focus of the facilitated session will be for the group to make meaning of the content and design quick wins - practical ways to use the learning with students.
The topics covered in our Teacher Training Program include:
- Creating a developmentally positive and supportive classroom environment
- Conducting formative and summative assessments for the students
- Differentiating instruction to meet the needs of a variety of learners
To support our work with local education institutions, we have developed a set of ASB advisory and mentoring services. These help organizations foster a culture of continuous growth and improvement. ASB extends active support for institutional reflection across different levels. From strategic vision setting and planning to infrastructure audits, we offer our involvement. It helps and enables other schools and organizations to continue to evolve to be on par with the best international schools in Mumbai. And in the process, get enabled to meet the changing needs of today’s global environment.
