2018 Celebration of Learning

Postcards from practice

was the theme of the fourth annual Celebration of Learning, held on 17 May 2018. The event showcased the work of nine project leaders, who have led eight research projects across ACS International Schools during the 2017 – 2018 school year. For CIM, the “postcards” metaphor is especially appropriate, as each of the presenters is on a unique professional practice journey, and the work they shared represented another significant stage in that journey. By sharing their learning journeys with you, we hope that you too are inspired to make a difference.

This year, for the first time, we video-recorded the presentations.  You can watch the Welcome speeches and each of the eight presentations by clicking on the videos below.  We hope you leave this page feeling inspired!
