Cambridge schools conference in Singapore
Abu Dhabi, July 31, 2013
Teachers from different schools in various countries who use Cambridge qualifications will gather in Singapore in October for the annual Cambridge Schools Conference.
The conference, entitled ‘Educating today’s learners for tomorrow’s world,’ will be held at the United World College South-East Asia East Campus on October 16 and 17.
It will explore the development of confident, responsible, reflective, innovative and engaged learners. It will also cover the development of learning through the effective use of technology.
Attending teachers will have the opportunity to listen to keynote presentations from experts, engage with panel discussions, share best practice in facilitated workshops and meet in interest groups.
Tristian Stobie, director of education, Cambridge International Examinations, said: “Cambridge Schools Conferences are valued by teachers as excellent professional development and networking opportunities. They are successful because of the expertise and enthusiasm brought to them by teachers who represent a wide variety of countries and cultures.”
“While students need to be educated for an increasingly global world, schools operate in very specific local and cultural settings which give them their own unique and special identity. We look forward to welcoming teachers to share ideas and contribute to a better understanding of this important area,” Stobie added.
Optional training courses for teachers who want to find out more about teaching and assessing skills in english, science and language awareness will be held on October 18. - TradeArabia News Service
