Announcing the opening of registration and hotel reservations for the
2017 AASSA Educators’ Conference
Hosted by: Escola Americana do Rio de Janeiro Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
Pre-Conference Sessions March 29, 2017 Leadership in Focus Instructional Coaches Retreat
Main Conference March 30 – April 1
Based around the theme of (Re), the conference design is centered around a collaborative think-tank whose aim is to (re)think and (re)invent international education. The conference will feature 3 keynoters (Craig Johnston, Michael Ehrhardt and Myron Dueck) who will challenge, respectively, the current system of international education, the teachers, and the students. We will have a wide variety of sessions, most of which will be collaborative by design: Teacher Workshops, Ted Talk workshops, cohorts each day of the conference, reverse mentoring sessions led by EARJ students, Edcamp, and a Learning Fair Gallery. In addition, we are planning an all-day institute each day for up to 100 conference participants (different each day) to work with our three presenters to drill deeper into the reinvention. Please take a look at the AASSA website and the video – (Re) 2017 Conference Teaser below for further information on the theme and we hope to see you in Rio!
Presentation Proposals will be accepted through October 17th Teacher Workshops, Ted Talk Workshops and Learning Fair Gallery Display proposals are to be submitted online
Presenters must deliver their presentation to a panel at their school and the school head should submit the Ranking Sheet to AASSA by October 25th. We will notify applicants in early November as to whether their workshop has been accepted, or not.
