IX NIS International Research-to-Practice Conference Information Letter
Nazarbayev Intellectual Schools AEO (NIS) will hold the ninth NIS International Conference on 26-27 October 2017 on the theme of ‘Values, Wellbeing and Innovation for the Future of Education’.
The NIS International Conference has become a centerpiece of the work of Nazarbayev Intellectual Schools, and acts as a platform for the exchange of experience, findings and trends on educational development in the context of a globalising world. Annually, 600-800 delegates participate in the conference, including representatives of local and international education organisations and academic institutions.
Over the past seven years, the conference has established its reputation as a forum raising some of the most critical questions in the sphere of education. This year, the conference will focus on critical areas such values and character education and student wellbeing, student character formation, and educational change and innovation.
The Nazarbayev Intellectual Schools system is undergoing continual improvement and the role of the International Conference in this process is hard to overstate. In 2016, NIS was chosen to be the national coordinator for the OECD Education 2030 project for Kazakhstan. The conference, by attracting academics and educationalists with considerable experience and groundbreaking ideas in educational reform, serves to support the further development of the educational systems of Kazakhstan and the wider region.
