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.

Session Objectives:
1. Learn about things that can make your life in Korea make some sense!
2. Cultural Sensitivity – walk away with the answer to, "Is there really such a thing as a Cultural Intelligence?"

Session Description:
This workshop is the product of several years of cultural orientation program for new staff at SIS that grew into a series on cultural sensitivity. Learn about Korean culture that will help you adjust to life here as well as deal with students and parents with strong Korean affiliations. We will go over tips on how to enhance cultural awareness and competence by encouraging positive cross cultural relationships in our community, both with colleagues as well as students.  The goal of the session is to leave with a clear definition, philosophy & techniques for a successful cross cultural communication.
