ACSI Europe member schools can now develop and offer international collaborative projects for their students with the following goals:

  • Promote international collaboration between ACSI member schools at teacher and student levels

  • Connect quality biblical integration ideas within your school curriculum

  • Incorporate Project Based Learning effectively

  • Develop 21st Century Learning skills with your students

This online course offers high quality methodological training combined with biblical integration using Project Based Learning. Course participants commit to partnering with other course participants for developing a project as part of the online course assignments. Projects developed in this international collaboration between participating teachers will then be implemented by student groups of the teachers. As a result, students of each participant will be involved in an international subject-related collaborative project.

The online course is designed to provide teachers with all the necessary support in the development of a well-designed project with biblical integration elements.

2nd Phase - Project Implementation

After the teams of teachers have fully developed their projects, they begin working with their students in collaboration with the students of other team members from the online course. Successful project implementation is facilitated and guaranteed by regular check-points, brief reports, and support by the course instructors.

Tanto la escuela cristiana como la escuela secular estudian el mundo que les rodea, pero lo estudian desde perspectivas significativamente diferentes y con propósitos significativamente diferentes. Este curso explora esas diferencias y nos ayuda a articular claramente esas diferencias en nuestros procesos de pensamiento y en nuestra comunicación.

Both the Christian school and the secular school study the world around them, but they study it from significantly different perspectives and for significantly different purposes. This course explores those differences and helps us clearly articulate those differences in our thought processes and in our communication.

There is no such thing as “neutral” teaching. Our worldview determines the way we teach. During this course, we will study the teaching process and how the teacher applies a worldview through their character, their calling, their attitudes and their activities in the classroom. Each participant will:

  • Describe who you are as a teacher and how that impacts your attitudes about teaching. 
  • Discuss the roles of the teacher and the purpose of teaching. 
  • Consider how a Christian worldview impacts the curriculum and what that means. 
  • Evaluate your approach to the teaching process and how you assess your students. 

As teachers, we are always concerned about the details of what our students learn but they also need to know why those details are important. Biblical integration is a process of seeing the big picture of Truth and always asking how those details fit into the big picture. If all truth is God's Truth, then every subject area has specific ways to help us understand God and understand His creation. This allows us to bring the details of learning together into a unified whole with meaning and beauty.

This course explores the unified and unfolding nature of the biblical narrative through it’s significant events, characters and themes. Participants will read selected portions of scripture, and consider how they fit together as a whole. This will be supported by readings from a succinct and carefully designed text as well as summary videos, and interaction with other participants in an asynchronous online learning environment. The course concludes with an opportunity for students to summarize and clarify their learning through designing a presentation that could be used to share the narrative with students of the age group they interact with the most in their school.

PhilosophyThis course is designed to help teachers develop in their understanding of a quality, Christian education and to assist them in the task of equipping students to influence their world through Biblical thought, character and action. The final objective of the course is developing a clear philosophy of Christian education.

The International Educational Leadership Conference takes place Feb. 27 - March 2, 2019 and provides for developing practical cooperation among Christian school leaders from Europe and beyond. This is a unique event, somewhat different from ICEC or ISLC hosted by the International Schools Office, and provides quality interaction, training and fellowship with national Christian school leaders from 20+ countries. Our theme this year is "Partnerships for Increased Impact" with an in-depth look at the blessings and process of strategic partnerships.

The Mentoring Emerging Leaders (MEL) program is ACSI Europe's service to strengthen and encourage young leaders as they mature in their faith and in their leadership abilities. This program is designed especially for upper high school or university/college students who have participated in the International Student Leadership Conference.

Current Project: SLC 2019 Middle School Program
ACSI has hosted the International Student Leadership Conference in Hungary since 1999. In 2019, we are adding a program for middle school student leaders. Participating in MEL will equip older high school or college/university students to be involved as leaders in this program - facilitating discussion groups and planning and running activities alongside adult leaders.
