Atlas 2013 Conference

Connecting Classrooms

Embedding internationalism in school life

 Centre for Life, Newcastle upon Tyne

Thursday 11th July  0930 – 1545

 This FREE one day course will present delegates with ways of introducing an international dimension into the classroom and allow consideration of methods for evaluation and monitoring impact.

The conference is designed to allow active participation and draw on delegates’ experiences of international working. There will be time to reflect on expected outcomes from international school links and ways in which global citizenship can be addressed through such partnerships.

Delegates will hear from academics, arts organisations and a range of practitioners from across the region about how international school partnerships have supported pupils’ understanding of global issues and their own spiritual and cultural development.

There will be information for schools about how to find partners in Europe and in the wider world and practical advice about how to benefit from European Commission funding streams. The programme will draw together best practice examples of the European Union’s Lifelong Learning programme and showcase Comenius and eTwinning projects.

The conference will be led by presenters from across the North East region, the European Commission and by pupils from our schools. It is well suited to schools at all stages in international work. More experienced practitioners will also find the case studies to be inspirational and be able to examine pathways for future development.

The conference is supported by the European Commission Representation in the UK.
