News, views and peer-reviewed educational research, summarised
EDDi is designed to keep you up-to-date with current research and best practice - with a heavy focus on international education.
Alongside opinion pieces, practical teaching advice and leadership guidance, we distill lengthy peer-reviewed and published academic articles (each article we read often running to 8,000 words), giving you the key highlights and takeaways.
What it takes us hours to digest each week, you can read in 20 minutes.
Collated and edited by a team of experienced international school leaders and university academic staff, EDDi gives you access to vital educational research an opinion.
Each edition of EDDi offers:
1. A carefully curated SELECTION of opinion pieces, practical advice and news.
2. An expert SUMMARY of 3-4 educational research papers. Our aim is less than 1,000 words per article. That’s a 5 minute read per article - and, you won’t be reading every article every week, just those which interest you.
We also publish ‘EDDi Extras’, occasional Special Editions (example here), thought-provoking opinion pieces (example here) and share interesting podcasts (listen here).
ABOUT THE AUTHORS
GETTING THE (BEST) JOBS
Conjure the image of an international schoolteacher’s lifestyle. What comes to mind?
Perhaps the scene is one of palm-fringed beaches, lazy days and long sunsets; perhaps it’s of roof-top cocktails, gazing at the bright lights of a big city. Perhaps the image is of faded colonial architecture, of glittering Asian temples, or snow-capped peaks.
In all of these images, there is truth. International schools are found the world over, from Australia to Oman, St Lucia to Switzerland and in cities from Bogotá to Bangkok.
This section of the book examines how you can join this world.
To do that, of course, you are going to need a job.
Across six informative and engaging chapters, the authors ask you to consider whether you are right for international schooling and, no matter if this is your first overseas job or your fifth, where in the world you might like to go.
From there topics include the qualifications you’ll need to get employed (or promoted) and how to choose which schools to apply to. You'll then be guided through the quirks of international school recruitment, how to impress at interview, and what to check before you sign on the dotted line.
