QSI Quintile Newsletter 2022/12
Connecting the QSI Family worldwide...
This November, the Learning Support Coordinator team traveled around the world providing professional development to many different schools.
We focused on building empathy for students with diverse needs and utilizing the Universal Design for Learning (UDL) framework to make curriculum accessible for all learners. Within our Building Empathy PD, we utilized an instructional practice with choice boards and offered participants to pick three out of the six options. These options included experiencing simulations of different disabilities and disorders to help give participants an example of what it is like to live with a certain specific disability or disorder every day.
What are your current roles and responsibilities?
My role within QSI is to promote, model, support, and provide training on the integration of technology into teaching and learning to facilitate student-centered, engaging, collaborative learning environments. I am also responsible for overseeing and evaluating educational technology resources that schools are using.
Before HQ, what other positions did you hold with QSI?
This is my 4th year with QSI. Before joining HQ, I worked for one year in Chengdu as the IB Coordinator and also taught technology and mathematics
