The International School Ho Chi Minh City (ISHCMC) Secondary Campus played host to the much-anticipated International Baccalaureate (IB) Asia Pacific Conference from April 14 to April 16, 2023, amid palpable excitement. We were thrilled to welcome 220 educators, coordinators, and administrators from around the world who shared a commitment to providing their pupils with a high-quality education.
The three-day conference provided an opportunity for attendees to participate in over a dozen workshops led by expert educators who covered a range of topics, including interdisciplinary teaching, language and literature, and more. Attendees came to the event with an open-minded spirit and willingness to share, which allowed them to learn not only from the experts but also from their fellow participants.
As the Head of School, Mrs. Kim Green, aptly expressed while opening the conference:
I know that you’ll enjoy learning, relearning and unlearning.
The attendees learned fresh perspectives, received useful advice, and acquired strategies for improving their teaching methods and enhancing their students’ learning experience.
The IB Conference provided a platform for educators to learn and develop their skills, enabling them to deliver the best pedagogical practices to their students. ISHCMC is honored to host such an impactful event, which allows educators to learn from experts within the field of education and equip themselves with the necessary skills to better serve their students. The success of the conference is a testament to our school’s unwavering commitment to excellence in education and a deep desire to remain at the forefront of modern educational practices.
Overall, the IB Conference was an enriching and empowering event that celebrated a shared passion for excellence in education. It was an opportunity for the participants to gain fresh insights, network with their peers, and learn from some of the most knowledgeable educators in their field. We look forward to hosting more such impactful events, which allow us to be a lingua franca for sharing our knowledge and experience with the larger education fraternity.
