CIS will host two regional symposiums in 2017 tailored to international school leaders and aspiring leaders focused on the development of intercultural learning. Presenters from the university and school communities versed in the latest research and successful practice will lead interactive sessions and workshops incorporating practical ideas that school leaders can implement.
The Symposium programme will consist of sessions relevant to all participants along with the opportunity to select one of the following strands:
- Developing Culturally Competent Leaders & Teachers: Why & How
- Promoting Global Citizenship: Learning Objectives, Pedagogy & Assessment
- Language as a Pathway to Intercultural Learning
By attending the Symposium you will have the opportunity to interact with experienced international school leaders, researchers, and thought leaders involved in innovative and proven practice that promotes intercultural learning in schools.
This seminar will benefit teachers, administrators, coordinators and school leaders across grade levels and subject areas.
This event will be held in the Centre for Development, Learning and Technology at the International School of Amsterdam (ISA).
The Council of International Schools (CIS) is a membership community committed to high quality international education. As a global non-profit membership organisation, CIS provides services to primary and secondary schools, higher education institutions and individuals that share these ideals: a desire to provide students with the knowledge, skills and abilities to pursue their lives as global citizens; and a commitment to high quality international education.
To achieve this goal, our members must infuse their programmes and offerings with international and intercultural perspective so that students can move forward with the attitudes and understanding that will provide them with a solid base wherever their studies or work may take them. Primary and secondary school members must further commit to undertaking an ongoing external quality assurance process to enhance student learning.
The CIS community includes 711 schools and 512 colleges and universities representing 112 countries.
