The Wisdom In Education Summit (WES) is a conference designed to bring together educators, teachers, leaders and education professionals to explore the future of learning.
This year’s theme will focus on innovations in collaborative practices that enhance student learning.
Wisdom tells us that two minds are better than one. Education has started to embrace this idea through power of collective efficacy. Together teachers can achieve more, especially if they collectively believe that they can do so.
WES2020 explores, interrogates and showcases how collective efficacy is being harnessed in today's school environment.
