  • give principals, senior school administrators, and teachers of studies of society and environment, English and the Arts, the skills and understanding to teach about Asia;
  • inspire participants to serve as 'Asia-advocates' within their school and discipline communities;
  • give participants the enhanced skills required to incorporate Asia-related materials into the Humanities and Social Science learning areas
