ISAKx is a new exclusively online education initiative by UWC ISAK Japan. Our vision is to introduce the “ISAK” method of critical thinking and diverse international classrooms to an audience that isn’t otherwise able to physically experience living and learning at UWC ISAK Japan.
Our program focuses on engaging and dynamic classroom discussions that leverage international student diversity. Students will learn to reflect on themselves, identify their unique leadership skills, and look at the world through different lenses that will broaden their perspectives.
ISAKx courses focus on teaching practical critical thinking skills and strategies with immediate real-world applicability. We currently offer 4 four courses:
- Exploring Leadership
- Society & Politics
- Science, Progress & Society
- Climate Change & Biodiversity
Our ISAKx teachers bring an incredible depth of skills gained from years of experience as IB-certified educators, entrepreneurs, environmental experts, and aerospace professionals.
