8 March, 2019
Pre-conference Institutes

A unique opportunity for educators to engage in an exploration of practical solutions based on real issues in education from a variety of specialized fields. The pre-conference institutes will offer interested educators an array of parallel running, full-day workshops held by renowned experts and keynote speakers from world-class universities and institutions.

Given the highly specialized topics, the caliber of institute presenters and the depth of content exploration, registration for the pre-conference institutes will be limited. Registrants are encouraged to act quickly, and priority will be given to registrants who register for both the institutes and conference together.



The thematic strands of the 2019 Forum will incorporate the cross-cutting theme of “Agile Minds, Turning Tides.”. Entrenched within each of the strands will be innovative approaches to teaching and the use of technology to enhance learning outcomes.

  • Holistic Development
    of Learners

  • Teaching
    for Learning

  • Learning
    in Early Years

  • Pedagogical

  • Digital Literacy
    in the Classroom
