Scotland is pleased to host the International Congress for School Effectiveness and Improvement (ICSEI) conference which will take place in Glasgow from 6-9 January 2016. The conference will be co-chaired by GTC Scotland and University of Glasgow.
With its theme of 'Connecting teachers, schools and systems: creating the conditions for effective learning' the conference offers a unique forum for practitioners, academics, policy makers and researchers to engage through keynote sessions, symposia and individual papers.
A number of sub themes evolve from this overarching theme:
- Teacher effectiveness, teacher quality and professional learning
- Leadership development and practice to build sustained improvement
- Partnerships and collaborations: schools, agencies, government, research
- Policy translations and mistranslations
- Researching the conditions for effective learning
- Self-evaluation: schools and systems improvement.
A 'Practitioners' Day' and opportunities to visit schools in Glasgow will give delegates the opportunity to connect directly with teachers and young people. With a rich cultural programme, you can look forward to a warm Scottish welcome at ICSEI 2016.
