Event description
IB Schools Australasia are delighted to have Louka Parry, former teacher and principal, deliver the 2020 Speaker Series.

About this Event

In 2020 IB Schools Australasia will host the sixth Annual Speaker Series as a commitment to the professional support of staff of member schools. The Visiting Speaker Series is designed to bring our member schools and wider community with an interest in the IB, presentations which inform, challenge and inspire participants. Presentations are designed to promote the IB and the ideals of the programmes.

IB Schools Australasia are delighted to have Louka Parry, former teacher and principal, deliver the 2020 Speaker Series.  He's a visionary with incredible knowledge and experience in intercultural understanding and language.

While the session is designed for educators within IB Schools, educators from non-IB Schools and Education students from Universities are also welcome to attend.

Program Details:



In this interactive workshop, we explore the changing landscape of work and learning, outlining global shifts and what they mean for schools in an ever more interconnected world. To thrive, young people will need a set of capabilities to help then take advantage of emerging opportunities. The knowledge and skills to engage across cultures and languages helps learners to successfully navigate with the necessary cultural agility that will characterise the future of work and society.

Participants will leave this workshop inspired about their role in shaping intercultural understanding and with a tangible idea to test that can build on their professional practice in their school.

Through engaging in this session, you will deepen your understanding of how we might better equip young people to work from their strengths, to develop empathy and perspective taking, and to be agile in their cultural interactions. By scaling and evolving our best practices we can equip our learners to better connect and communicate, accelerating the development of their knowledge, skills and dispositions to make an impact in the future.
