How are courses presented online?
Each online course in the program is offered through the Learning Management System (LMS) Canvas, which incorporates an easy-to-use interface, simple navigation, and allows for consistent interaction among instructors and participants. Most of the coursework is completed asynchronously (at your own pace) with due dates that are clearly laid out at the beginning of each course.

How large are the class sizes?
The current class average is 15 students. We believe that smaller class sizes allow participants to more easily share personal experiences and situations, get to know one another, and have an opportunity to deeply explore topics that are important to today’s international school leaders.
Do I need to be an AAIE member in order to take Institute courses?
No. However, AAIE members are offered reduced tuition.
Is accreditation or graduate credit available for Institute courses?
Are any face-to-face interactions required?
Yes. Virtual, synchronous face-to-face interactions take place over Skype, through the conferencing tool in Canvas, or via another selected tool with instructors, mentors, and participants. Instructors or mentors will reach out to participants to establish a date and time that works best for everyone, taking into consideration work schedules, external commitments, and time zones.

No. We have a rolling admissions policy that allows you to join the program at any point. Find out more about upcoming AAIE Institute courses.
