Today!  Lighting Up the New AAIE Website 


All New Continuous Leadership Learning Territory to Discover


AAIE will ensure the daily care and feeding of our new website. New content each day will be added including new ideas for the future to wonder about with colleagues.  


We want your leadership learning (ours too!) to continue and for your new AAIE site to challenge you, your thinking and ways of doing. We mean to provoke and to keep your perspectives whip-smart and informed about international school leadership.


Keeping your leadership learning going drives the architecture of our new site.  New features are listed to the right.  Our critical partnerships and friendships are the most visible– from "Workinars",  to the head of school and board trustee "Leading-Up" initiative, and also an asynchronous learning platform to stay alert about the nine-leadership challenges.   Also upfront is our leadership coaching and mentorship program– with AISH and AAIE arm-in-arm as partners.


In essence, you helped design the new AAIE website.  The pull-down menu at the very top of the homepage is designed to use research and current practice around the nine international school leadership challenges.  Here we bring forward recent HEADTalks from the San Francisco CONVERSATION, the Powerpoint presentations shared by our speakers and we've added in most recent research and relevant contemporary articles from media.  


Please take a test-drive of your new AAIE website.  Promise that you'll find a bit of blue sky in your schedule and navigate through the leadership learning options.  Pull things down, punch every button and have a good read, watch, listen or all of the above.  Then of course, tell us what you think.  


And speaking of partnerships– the good people at Finalsite have been with us every step of the way, from concept to design to helping us translate learning ideas into finding a proper digital home for content.   And special thanks to AAIE's Chris Nini, our very own digital magician.

You Help Guide the Content and Our Shared Online CONVERSATION                   


The new AAIE website is for you.  We will post your blog, just let us know.  Tell us your leadership success stories and provide the equivalent of a five-paragraph essay with pictures– we'll post in a special section on the homepage. You've just finished a book or professional journal article? Tell us about it and we'll post-it and then we'll let everyone know in the name of continuous improvement.  We must help each other keep the conversation going. Email to
