Earlier this year four ISB alumni (Willem Kistemaker, Miles Mpfou, Kate and Brian Gallagher) created careers advice videos for our Senior School students for the ISB Talks series. Recently, they were invited to participate in an ISB first: a virtual workshop between alumni and students.
ISB Head of Digital Learning, David Collett, reflects on his own upbringing and experiences and how that has played a role to see things from different perspectives in his work with students and in education today.
