Additional Workshop information

Using Lessons from Madiba as the organizing theme, we crafted a program of presentations and workshops organized around the ideas of Learning from the Past, Celebrating the Present, and Creating the Future. As we journey with boys, it is valuable to learn lessons from the past, celebrate what we, at boys’ schools, are doing well and create a future where our boys can be active global citizens. This was an African conference with a global feel, and in true African tradition all sessions were given as ‘Indabas’ – discussions, debates, and interactions where everyone had the opportunity to get involved.

This year, there were TWO types of conference presentations:

  1. SHORT 10-MINUTE PRESENTATION with questions and answers to follow.
    Format: 3 presenters, with similar themes/topics, co-presented in each session. Each presenter had 10 minutes for his/her presentation. When all three finished speaking, there was the opportunity for a facilitated Q and A session with the presenters.
  2. 90-MINUTE WORKSHOP
    This presentation warranted this extra time and attention because of its depth and complexity. Presenters brought a high degree of expertise and experience to a matter of compelling interest to delegates.

Orgainsing themes and topics for conference presentations:

  • Collaboration across Networks – Connecting Classrooms for Global Learning
  • Communication – Effective Oral and Written Communication
  • Digital Literacy
  • Emotional Development and Intelligence
  • Entrepreneurship and Initiative
  • Global Citizenship
  • Leadership
  • Learning Spaces/ Learning Environment
  • Problem Solving and Critical Thinking
  • Sustainability
