International School of Geneva Education Conference 2017
February 1, 2023
With 140 nationalisties and 80 mothertongues, there is no school in the world more diverse than the International School of Geneva. Here’s an overview from the school which demonstrates key themes of the conference:
As teachers, we speak of a mission to offer an education based on fundamental humanitarian values – the education of the heart....The concept of a holistic education has been altered considerably in recent decades and is informed by research in biology, cognitive psychology and neuroscience. If we seek to provide an education that will allow our students to develop as balanced, ethical beings equipped to confront the complex problems of the 21st century, then we must take into consideration what we know about the nature of human knowledge and thought and the human condition.
In 2017 the ISG will be joined by renowned speakers for their Education Conference designed to provide a unique and fundamental opportunity to explore the role of both the head and the heart in the learning process; both of which are supremely important in offering the best education possible.
