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
TEACHING IN INTERNATIONAL SCHOOLS
Wherever in the world you find yourself, no two schools are alike.
In the diverse world of international schooling, that sentiment is doubly true.
You could, for example, join a franchised school in one country, move to a sister school elsewhere and find the experience completely different – with maybe only the school’s name, its logo, and the student uniforms feeling familiar.
However, there are commonalities.
There are themes which run throughout international schools.
As the book explores, from becoming an expert in English as an additional language, to teaching Third Culture Kids and championing safeguarding and wellbeing, from decisions on your career progression to your personal journey amongst fellow educational nomads, there are shared experiences.
Through the voices of teachers who have 'been there and done that', the 'Guide' introduces you to what it's like to teach in international schools. Or, if you an an experienced international teacher, reminds you why you started the journey in the first place.
“I wish this book existed when I moved to international teaching; covers all of the burning questions everyone always asks”
