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 Description:

As a certified ASEP instructor, John has condensed this course and focussed it for the international teacher and coach audience.  There will be practical tools that every participant can apply to his or her own coaching.
