KORCOS18 IEC has ended
We are here: Compassion, Creativity, Change.  

Let’s come together as a community of educators to reflect, grow and connect, empowering each other to create change agents for tomorrow.  What does it mean to be compassionate? What does it mean to be innovative? What does it mean to teach? To learn? To care?

We can’t wait to host you at GSIS for the Korea Council of Overseas Schools International Educators’ Conference 2018 (#KORCOSIEC18).  We are excited to make connections with the vision to create a better tomorrow.  That begins with the idea of a "We" being in the moment together, with the commitment to be our best selves for our students.  

Let’s do this.

  2. Share and take away research-based best practices to meet the linguistic needs of all students in a language-rich classroom
Session Description:
Remember that time at a restaurant when pointing didn’t work out the way you wanted, and you thought to yourself, I wish I spoke the language? What about that time with the taxi driver? Chances are that you will not learn to speak Korean in this session, but come join a thoughtful dialogue about language! Be ready to have an interactive and fun session that will help you empathize with your English language learners and reflect on your current instructional practices.
