School’s still out, but for principals and other education professionals, there’s still learning to do. That’s right, it’s time for the 10th International Confederation of Principals (ICP) World Convention in Toronto August 15-18 at the Metro Toronto Convention Center. This year’s theme is Leading Student Achievement: An International Odyssey, bringing together principals, vice-principals, education leaders, researchers, academics, policy makers, government representatives and education professionals from all around the world.
Over 2,000 attendees will participate in breakout workshops as well as listen to keynote speakers like Sir Michael Barber, Michael Fullan, Andy Hargreaves, Jennifer James, Stephen Lewis and more. Exhibitors for all aspects of education from online learning to professional development will have booths set up throughout the convention along with a bookstore onsite. The ICP World Convention 2011 is hosted by the Ontario Principals’ Council (OPC), along with the Catholic Principals’ Council of Ontario (CPCO), l’Association des directions et directions adjointes des écoles franco-ontariennes (ADFO), and the Ministry of Education. We’re sure Toronto will be swarming with passionate education professionals next week – will you be there?
