Influenced by the reflections and responses of the 2017 Forum, the thematic strands of the 2018 Forum incorporated the cross-cutting theme of 'Growth beyond Grades'. Entrenched within each of the strands will be innovative approaches to teaching and the use of technology to enhance learning outcomes.
The thematic focus for the 2018 Teacher Skills Forum (Growth beyond Grades) encouraged educators of all ages to examine practices, other than grading, that are likely to have long lasting effect on students' learning and equip them with life skills needed for the 21st century.
