2018 IBSC-Africa Regional Conference, Developing Educators: Nurturing Teachers Toward Growing Boys into Significant Men, March 8-10, 2018, Michaelhouse, Balgowan, KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa

In any school, staff play a central role in nurturing confidence, sparking enthusiasm, and cultivating a lifelong love of learning. Nowhere is this more true than in the classrooms and on the playing fields of an all-boys school. At the core of these endeavors is the development of a boy's character.

In delivering on this mandate, staff interface with boys across many layers of the educational experience, from the informal interactions in the corridors, dining rooms, and dormitories to the more structured settings of the classrooms, stages, and sports fields of our schools.

Developing skills to span these environments is critical to how successfully our schools can deliver on the promise of growing a generation of young men of character. Explore the theme Developing Educators: Nurturing Teachers Toward Growing Boys into Significant Men with an invigorating program of keynote speakers and engaging workshops on offer at the IBSC conference to be held at Michaelhouse in the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands March 8-10, 2018.
