Professor Michael Fullan and Dr David Gleeson will be keynote presenters at this year’s Asia-Pacific International Schools Conference (AISC). Their presentations will address important topical well-being issues and in particular “How Does Stress And Academic Pressure Affect Teenagers?”

Some of the biggest names driving change across Asia-Pacific have joined the speaker line-up at this year’s Asia-Pacific International Schools Conference (AISC), taking place in Hong Kong on December 14-15 2017.

AISC is the annual event for international school leaders and educators in the Asia Pacific region. AISC brings together the international schools community to explore topical education issues that educators within Asia Pacific international schools are keen to debate.

This year, the AISC conference will explore three important educational themes: Mental Health and Wellbeing, Early Years Pedagogy and Transforming Learning. AISC delegates are able to access the keynotes, workshops, networking sessions and the co-located Learning & Teaching Expo.
