YCIS Beijing Hosts IBO and AIE Conferences
In December, YCIS Beijing hosted the Alliance for International Education (AIE) Conference, the topic of which was ‘Plainly International’. AIE is an organisation that aims to bring together all those who are committed to advancing international and intercultural understanding through education, focusing on collaborative ventures that enhance the learning of relevant concepts, skills and values of global education and pursue actions that encourage, promote and facilitate partnerships and projects. During the 3-day event, many leading educational professionals presented discussions of important topics including YCIS Beijing Co-Principal Wayne Richardson and IB Global Politics Teacher Gareth Evans, both of whom presented a session focusing on ‘The Global Child’. The aim of the individual presentations was to share new concepts and understandings of educating international students.
To be chosen by both organisations is true recognition of YCIS Beijing as an outstanding, prominent and leading international school in the world.
