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.

Sketchy Thoughts: Let's doodle!...I mean practice Visual Note taking.
Limited Capacity filling up

Session Objectives:
1. Learn to quickly convey ideas by drawing 
2. Learn how to make impactful Visual Notes

Session Description:
Love to draw? Want to learn? Just need some time to doodle?

If you answered yes to any of those questions, then this session is for you! We will be looking at what makes for effective graphics and practice creating impactful layouts, but mostly we will be having a good time with a pen and paper. You don’t have to be good at drawing. (Actually, it's probably better if you're not). You just need to be willing to look at learning in a different way. Join the fun.

Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

Session Objectives:
1.  Showcase a N to 6th Grade private school operation in Negros Island of the Philippines
2.  Share models of community building activities that balance compassion and creativity

Session Description:
Would you like a story of inspiration? Would you like to discover other secrets to cultivate learning as a success habit? Come, see and hear the story of the Balanced Achievement School of Excellence, about how creativity blends with compassion in this ever-dynamic learning environment.

Fondly called BASE, this school runs completely tuition-based at the poblacion of Sibulan, Negros Oriental, Philippines. How can this be possible? Come and hear about how a small school can give rich quality education to nursery up to 6th grade learners. The first creativity challenge of the BASE was the conversion of a residential structure into a school in 2016. Into its 3rd year of operation, the challenge in the rising enrollment will be space!

Why is the BASE successful? The BASE celebrates each child's natural abilities but the challenge is also presented to the children for them to stretch their innate styles to enhance their learning. Children discover that fun learning can be unlimited. Support from the BASE parents, the municipality and the young teachers create a unique arena of learning. The BASE builds community symbiosis by blending creative learning with values. The formula IQEQ is blended with VQ, the values quotient. This is a story you won't want to miss!

Fit For Life!
Limited Capacity seats available

Session Objectives:
  1. What is fitness? What does it mean to be fit for unexpected challenges?
  2. Discover how core stability is critical to everyday functional movements.
  3. Explore ways we can balance health and physical fitness with professional excellence.

Fitness is described in so many ways that it can be difficult to define. Is a long distance runner more fit than a weight lifter?  How do we improve our fitness level? Does food have anything to do with fitness? 
This session is designed to address these questions through sharing of information, conversations with colleagues, and practicing fundamental movements. This session will not be a CrossFit workout, and it will not be a CrossFit indoctrination! We will do some fundamental movements, so comfortable clothing would be helpful if you want to participate. Come join us as we discover together how we can be our best for work, play, and whatever comes our way in life.

RIPCORD- a professional development possibility?
Limited Capacity seats available

Session Objectives:
  1. Reflect on how pedagogical excellence is currently shared/celebrated in your school. 
  2. Evaluate the potential of the RIPCORD initiative as a PD inclusion 
Session Description:
We all know that teacher professional development in international schools is a necessary investment in the quest to raise student learning outcomes.  Yet, these professional development opportunities often require substantial investment of school and personal resources. Value for investment is sometimes questionable. There has to be a better way!

In this session, we will explore RIPCORD as a possible approach to the reinvigoration of professional development in your school. Designed by teachers for teachers, the initiative focuses on the use of existing school-based pedagogical excellence to drive pedagogical rejuvenation. Specific focus is placed on how observation, reflection, dialogue and celebration are used as a multi-phased collective approach.

As a participant, you will be asked to reflect on your current beliefs pertaining to pedagogical excellence, dialogue with others about how expertise is acknowledged in your school, and consider how an individualised version of the RIPCORD initiative could be of value.
