XSEED School of Tomorrow Conference 2014, Coimbatore
While thousands of new schools open up each year with great fanfare and aspiration, the challenge of reaching scale while maintaining quality remains largely unsolved. In response to this challenge, the theme for this year’s XSEED School of Tomorrow Conference in Coimbatore was “Becoming Better & Bigger – Opportunities for Aspiring Schools in India”.
The conference focused on some pragmatic solutions and provocative ideas on how to re-invent schools for the future. The conference brought together leading experts from international universities, national foundations and leading schools.
Through keynote addresses, research presentations and panel discussions the conference addressed practical issues relevant to schools like
- What kind of skills and abilities should schools prepare their students to make them competitive in the future?
- What role can school leadership play in building institutional capability, academic quality and reputation?
- How can mainstream schools balance the demands of parents, regulators and market while delivering quality learning?
- What does quality look like inside and outside the classroom and how to sustain it over time?
