Over the weekend of 24 and 25 September, teachers and school leaders from 37 countries came together for our first in-person Cambridge Schools Conference since the Covid 19 pandemic began. The conference was hosted at our international headquarters in Cambridge and was a sell-out event.
We explored this year’s theme, ‘Creating a positive environment for learning’, from a range of perspectives with keynote presentations from Professor Mark Winterbottom, Dr Izabela Zych, Professor Hilary Cremin, and Professor Rob Coe. Cambridge International staff and external contributors also led 15 practical workshops on topics including dealing with conflict and preventing bullying.
The conference also explored behaviour for learning and what gets in the way of learning. The pandemic has exacerbated the challenges that students experience, often leaving them less equipped to manage their behaviours in a positive way. However, there are many aspects of education that impact on teachers’ and learners’ ability to perform to their potential – such as how inclusive classrooms are, issues of child safeguarding, and how to promote a collaborative staff culture.
Paul Ellis, Head of Teaching & Learning Strategy said: “We were thrilled to welcome teachers and school leaders back to Cambridge, and engage with new concepts, share knowledge and discuss common challenges in teaching practice, particularly following the impact – both negative and otherwise – of remote teaching and learning.”
We intend to run two more conferences in 2023 on the same theme. The first of these will be online in March and the second is planned to take place in the USA in June. We look forward to welcoming our global community at one of our future events.
