The Interschool Collaborative Exchange program is a unique bridging program that was initiated to meaningfully increase the quality of teaching and learning between PEA and ELPS while maintaining the best international practices. Dr. Abdul Haqq Baker engineered the ICE program specifically to cater to the needs of the two sister schools. This joint-platform synergizes the best of both schools; resources, advisory, specialized expertise – while enhancing leadership, innovation, and overall learning experience across both.
The ICE program will facilitate, empower and engage the academic counterparts of each school. In the initial pilot engagement, one nominee-facilitator from each department will present their ideas, strategies, practices to the counterpart. The open sessions allow for constructive feedback, problem-solving, professional collaboration, and sharing ideas and resources.
Based on the availability of the staff, the sessions are currently held online to assure the safety of all. (Meetings are supported by IT on a need basis.)
However, as and when needed, the group assembles in the PEA Dome Conference room, which is easily accessible to both schools, while maintaining SOP standards for optimum interaction and team building.
The ICE program participants are nominated by school leadership on a rotation basis and are notified accordingly. All individuals receive a certificate of participation for their HR File and as part of their Professional Development Portfolios.
