Intentionally Small Schools – an opportunity; not an apology!

Date: Monday, 31 January 2022
14:30 GMT / 15:30 CET

One hour conversation and discussion.

 

We are pleased to have Dr Michael Johnston and Dr. Jeremy Majeski join a conversation with Sarah Kupke, ECIS Head of Professional Learning, followed by an open discussion. Intentionally small schools offer opportunities not to be found in a larger setting. Schools should not only be unapologetic about their size but should seek the unique learning opportunities that come with it. Small schools can be designed to thrive and we propose that we help each other do so by sharing better practices globally. Come join the conversation to access a network of schools that can support each other and be a part of designing the network itself. We look forward to sharing, listening, and planning as we look to collaborate for improved learning for all our students. After the conversation we will open the discussion to those who join the call.
