9th World Convention of the International Confederation of Principals 2009: "Charting the New Education Landscape"
The International Confederation of Principals convenes every two years for dialogue and professional development. The biennial convention brings together principals from around the world in a special community of practitioners to share and learn new developments on leadership trends and insights. The forthcoming convention will be held on the beautiful multicultural island of Singapore, located in the warm sunny tropics. The convention provides a unique experience not to be missed. Luminaries like Sir Dexter Hutt, Prof Andy Hargreaves, Prof David Perkins, Mr Michael Furdyk, Prof Kishore Mahbubani, Dr Gene Carter and Prof Yong Zhao will lead the convention in exploring important issues in the new educational landscape. Singapore provides an exciting backdrop to the convention with its forward-looking education system, recognized by McKinsey for the innovative way it ensures the quality of instruction.
Participants will also have the opportunity to experience the vibrancy of the local schools. The ICP Singapore Convention will provide plenty of opportunities for participants to network with more than 1,600 educators from all over the world. The tagline of the convention "Many Minds, One Heartbeat" encapsulates the universal work of educators with their myriad challenges to bring about a better world.
