Our East Asia regional team has successfully run two trainer recruitment events and the first Global Perspectives Subject Café in China.
The two recruitment events, which took place in Shanghai and Shenzhen in March, aimed to recruit trainers who currently live and work in China. Nineteen passionate Cambridge teachers took part in the event in Shanghai, and 13 participated in the Shenzhen event.
The teachers received a day’s instruction on being a Cambridge trainer, as well as information about Cambridge approaches to teaching and learning and professional development. Events of this kind develop high-quality trainers in China, promoting Cambridge Professional Development for teachers and school leaders.
Also in March, the regional team held the first Cambridge Global Perspectives Open Class and Subject Café in Shanghai Harrow International School. More than 30 delegates attended the event, including school leaders, teachers and researchers. Trainer Frances Nehme Pearson gave an overview of Cambridge Global Perspectives, and Roger Groenink, Cambridge Global Perspectives trainer and Geography teacher at Shanghai Harrow International School, shared his experience of teaching the subject in New Zealand.
After this introduction, Frances led a hands-on session about active learning activities in a Global Perspectives class. This was followed by a demonstration class in Cambridge A Level Global Perspectives & Research with Harrow International School Y12 students, led by Roger Groenink.
The event gave school leaders and teachers an opportunity to discuss the course and to find out how it is able to support students in their university lives.
