What professional learning supports teachers to become Asia capable?

 

Asia Literacy and the Australian Teaching Workforce Summary Report

The Asia Literacy and the Australian Teaching Workforce report identifies five enablers that support teachers to build Asia capability:

  • experience Asia first-hand through work, study, travel or family connections
  • access substantial tertiary study and/or professional learning
  • be involved in school-to-school connections with countries of Asia
  • experience Asia first-hand through work, study, travel or family connections
  • gain support from their school and school system
  • school teaches an Asian language.

Download the Asia capable teacher survey (PDF: 158 KB) to create your own staff survey to consider the following:

  • Are teachers at your school demonstrating Asia capability? If so, how?
  • Which enabling factors support them to develop Asia capability? 
  • How might you utilise the knowledge and skills of these teachers to support you to lead Asia capability?
