Excellence in School Education
The 7th International conference for school leaders
27th – 29th November
For the first time since its inception in 1961, Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi, ventured into school education with a belief that “Higher Education cannot perform unless school system perform”. The intention was to bring together the practitioners and researchers around the globe under one roof and give them a plat-form to disseminate their findings and initiate a reaction for further research and pedagogical developments.
And the response has been astonishing, what we can term as the convergence of the industry and academia. With 690+ papers received, we have witnessed a tremendous desire among domain experts to contribute to the school domain, with participation from around 500 schools every year for the past 6 years. We found a similar desire among participants to absorb and incorporate the learning for the benefit of schools.
Unlike the 1st conference which had a broad underlying theme, 2nd version of the conference was more focused on the practices and processes adopted by the schools. In this third attempt of ours, we tried to converge and diffuse the good practices be it local or transcontinental at one place. The 3rd & 4th Conference mainly focussed on upgrading Leadership practices of School practitioners with consideration of International perspectives as well. Year before last schools were asked to share their top 20 concerns from which "Value Inculcation" emerged as a potential conference theme later addressed during 5th International Conference. The 6th International conference focussed on the scholastic, co-scholastic & Values achievement of students with a theme of Creating High Achieving schools.
Continuing the legacy of 6 International conferences at IIT Delhi, & 2 International conferences at IIT Madras, In 2015 we are coming up with our 7th International conference which will focus in the theme of “ACADEMIC LEADERSHIP - TEACHERS TRANSORMING CHILDREN”
