IH Director of Studies Conference Conference 2013, London, UK, 10.1.13
The interview process is over and the new teacher has their arrival date. He/she will show up nervous, excited, alone, and out of place – what kind of orientation should they receive? How we present our host culture and company at orientations sets a precedent for various interactions over the following months. And just as an occasional needs analysis should reposition educational approaches, orientations should occasionally be re-evaluated for their effectiveness. This session will first analyse IH Moscow’s orientation procedures, and then present comparative survey results from IH schools around the world.
