Monday, 27 May 2024


Welcome to the TIE Podcast for International Educators, your gateway to the world of international education. This podcast is by international school educators, for international school educators, and we're here to delve into topics that are not only top of mind but crucial for our community. Whether you're an experienced educator or just starting your international education journey, join us as we explore this exciting world together.
Our inaugural episode dives deep into a question that underpins the quality of education: "What are international school standards of practice, and why are they so vital for ensuring quality teaching and learning in international schools?" Host, Sue Easton, Director of Programs at The Principals' Training Center, engages a panel of thought leaders in a compelling conversation, where they share their thoughts and experiences on the "Why" behind international school standards.
