Leading exam board, University of Cambridge International Examinations (CIE), is hosting its annual teaching conference in Kuala Lumpur. The conference is open to delegates from CIE's global teacher network and gives CIE teachers unrivalled access to leading figures in the development of education.
The theme of this year's conference is a distinctive approach to teaching called Assessment for Learning. It is based on the idea that pupils will improve most if they understand the aim of their learning.
The keynote addresses will be from Professor John MacBeath, Chair of Educational Leadership, at the University of Cambridge and Dr Bethan Marshall, Senior lecturer in English education, Kings College London. Datuk Ong Tee Kiat, Deputy Minister of Higher Education, will also address Delegates.
During the conference, CIE teachers will be able to attend subject-specific workshops delivered by expert assessment leaders from Cambridge and practitioners from iNet.
CIE Regional Representative, Ng Kim Huat, said: "We're delighted that CIE has chosen to hold its 4th International Teachers' Conference in Kuala Lumpur. Cambridge International Teachers' Conferences are always exciting, and allow colleagues from many different countries to share ideas and expertise."
