Understanding boys’ learning and development through research.
The IBSC connects dedicated educators worldwide to discover the best learning practices for boys.
IBSC partners with One Schoolhouse to deliver online professional development to boys' educators.
Join us as we bring together professionals new to boys' schools and seasoned colleagues to share best practices and facilitate discussions intended to strengthen all participants' contributions to their schools and pedagogical approaches that work especially well for boys.
To take full advantage of learning and reflection, the conference takes place on two separate dates. Attend the first part of the conference at Harrow School in London on Friday, February 1. Then put into practice and reflect on what you learn before we gather for the second part of the conference at Summer Fields in Oxford on Friday, May 10.
The winner of the IBSC Action Research Award for 2018 is Nick Little from The Scots College in Sydney, Australia. Nick receives this award for the completion of a highly innovative action research project of the highest standard, and for his valuable contribution to the IBSC action research community.
Nick's research, working within the topic of 'Adaptability in a Changing World,' focussed on exploring effective teaching strategies for Next Generation Learning Spaces, and, in particular, how Task-Based Learning might help Grade 9 boys better adapt to learning effectively in these spaces. Through this action, the boys were able to identify tasks that worked well in NGLS spaces and link their learning to those tasks. They demonstrated increased engagement in their learning and an awareness of the need for increased focus and responsibility, to adapt to the increased independence given them in those spaces.
