Learning Lessons from Africa


This workshop aims to highlight the innovations, good practices and future-focused strategies found in international schools, and increasingly national schools, across Africa. Participants will learn how student learning is improved, enriched and with greater agency through the teaching of International Mindedness, Service Learning, Blended Learning, and the use of Instructional Ladders in Vertical Groupings and Feedback Loops. We will explore how teacher effectiveness is improved through Coaching, Professional Learning Communities, Teacher Self-Evaluation Rubrics, Resilience Training and professional development focused on improvements in student learning. Participants will consider how these lessons from Africa apply to schools in the UK and beyond.

Across two days, over 250 sessions will take place at the Festival. A full timetable of sessions will be available from late May 2019. Until this point we will only be announcing the day(s) sessions will be taking place.
