The NIST Network

We believe that collaborating with others at the individual, local, national and international levels is critical to meeting the challenges of the 21st century, and this is reflected in the NIST network. As a hub for education in Southeast Asia, our campus is host to several other organizations, and we maintain close affiliations with other schools and educators. This network ensures that we are able to offer the best possible professional development and opportunities to the Bangkok international school community, and teachers, students and learners from around the globe.

Professional Learning Hub

The heart of the NIST network, the Professional Learning Hub (PLH) serves as a global centre for professional development in to the fields of education and advancement, hosting dozens of major conferences and workshops every year. In addition to serving as an incredible resource for our school’s own teachers and staff, The PLH also draws educators from every continent for its events, which include conferences such as Learning 2.0, EdTechTeam Thailand Summit, the Global Citizenship Summit and more.
