Australia-Thailand BRIDGE Project
Australia–Thailand BRIDGE Project
Learn how three Australian schools are using online tools to engage with their Thai partners.
Eight schools from each of Australia and Thailand will be selected to participate in the 2014 program. One teacher per school will be nominated to lead the project in each school. The nominated teacher will participate in two 10-day in-country professional learning programs – delivered in Australia and Thailand.
Each Australian teacher is required to contribute $1,800 towards his or her participation in the professional learning program (can be covered by the teacher, school or education jurisdiction). This contribution may be tax deductible. The Australia-Thailand Institute covers additional costs through a scholarship ($4,375 each).
In-country professional learning programs:
Thai teachers visit Australia for the BRIDGE Professional Learning Program – Wed 20 August to Saturday 30 August 2014
Australian teachers visit Thailand for BRIDGE Professional Learning Program – Wed 7 January to Sat 7 January 2014
About Thai BRIDGE
Since its establishment in 2013, 16 teachers from 8 school partnerships have been involved in the Australia-Thailand BRIDGE School Partnerships Project. In 2014 8 new Australia-Thailand school partnerships will be established.
The project is funded by the Australia–Thailand Institute at the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) and implemented in partnership with the Thai Ministry of Education and Australian Education International in Bangkok.
