Nazarbayev Intellectual Schools AEO (NIS) will hold the tenth NIS International Conference on 25-26 October 2018 on the theme of ‘Next Generation Schools’.
The NIS International Conference has become a centerpiece of the work of Nazarbayev Intellectual Schools, and acts as a platform for the exchange of experience, findings and trends on educational development in the context of a globalising world. Last year, over 1400 delegates participated in the conference, including representatives of local and international education organisations and academic institutions.
The Nazarbayev Intellectual Schools system is undergoing continual improvement and the role of the International Conference in this process is hard to overstate. The conference, by attracting academics and educationalists with considerable experience and groundbreaking ideas in educational reform, serves to support the further development of the educational systems of Kazakhstan and the wider region.
Over the past eight years, the conference has established its reputation as a forum raising some of the most critical issues in the sphere of education. This year, the conference will focus on questions such as critical approaches to schooling, the demands of future generations of schoolchildren, and the uses of technologies such as artificial intelligence in educational practice.
