Are you seriously interested in mobility issues at international schools? Have you already been involved in addressing mobility, or have the themes in one or more of Ota’s workshops piqued your attention? The introduction in this final session quickly guides you to the collision of two big ideas: transitions must be addressed for optimal learning to occur, but no single school can accomplish the task alone, because the issues span multiple schools. What should school staff do?

Ota’s final session is an attempt to provide admissions and school staff with a platform to discuss the macro-challenges involved in addressing mobility at international schools worldwide. How do you address an issue that transcends single schools? Are networks of “Safe Passage” schools possible? Are nascient networks already emerging? What role could accreditation play in the future?

Answers to these questions are already beginning to take form, as Ota and others prepare to host the first-ever international conference on addressing mobility at international schools in The Hague, Netherlands, on March 22, 2017. Join the debate, and let him convince you to continue the debate in The Hague in 2017!
