031Professional learning and training is embedded into the practice of nearly all education systems, as schools tend to be organisations that value the development of their staff. This is especially the case in China, where significant resource and time are dedicated to providing structured and comprehensive training for teachers in state schools. Professional learning in international or Chinese private schools is valued equally highly, although rarely implemented in the same structured way as in state schools.

The truism exists that proving opportunities for professional learning and training directly improves quality and standards. However, there is much evidence to indicate this is rarely the case. Drawing on the work of Guskey (2009) and Coe et al. (2015), I suggest that professional development has high impact if it:

• Is embedded over a sustained period and woven into the ‘rhythm’ of the school
• Is focused on a particular challenge or the direct work of the teachers
• Is coherent and meaningful in terms of desired outcomes, process and content
• Is structured around effective professional learning approaches
• Supports strategic priorities for the school and staff and fully endorsed by the leaders

This suggests that professional learning has impact only when it focuses on the empowering teachers to take ownership, occurs locally and occurs in context. Importantly, Coe et al. (2015) indicate the importance of a sustained model of professional learning.

The Huili Education Institute of Learning
The principles listed above underpin the professional learning opportunities provided by the Institute of Learning. Conferences are structured to provide a deep exploration of three or four aspects of education, whilst workshops offer an opportunity for sustained professional learning and application in a specific area of strategic priority. This approach differs from traditional conferences and workshops.

The Inspiring Learning Conference on 26th and 27th January in Tianjin offers transformational professional learning opportunity in breadth and depth.

• Themes focus on current areas of priority in education
• Four themes for the conference cover assessment, independence, teaching of mathematics and educational research.

The four themes have been established because they are current areas of focus across education in China. For example, China is highly regarded for mathematics education primarily due to performance in the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA), but critical thinking and creativity are focus areas for development. Both Helen Tate and Ian Taylor bring many years of leading innovative and creative mathematics programmes that would strongly complement those currently operating in international, bilingual or state schools in China.

Furthermore, there will be an opportunity to explore differentiation, critical thinking and creativity along with a focus on strengthening the leadership of learning. This will provide an opportunity for participants to rethink teaching and education in their schools by an introduction to an effective assessment framework that informs differentiated learning.

032In the first Inspiring Learning Conference in Shanghai last November, attendees came from international, bilingual and state schools. Feedback included:

The conference, by far is the most informative and inspiring PD I have ever attended. So thank you. My colleague and I are absolutely interested in attending more conferences offered by Huili IoL.

The conference shed lots of light and resolved questions which puzzled me greatly before.

Training is very targeted, and it combines both theory and practices very well.

This Inspiring Learning Conference held at Wellington College Tianjin on 26th and 27th January 2019

惠立教育研究院举办的Inspiring Learning 教育峰会一定不容错过!





ba不同于目前市场面上许多讲座类的教育活动或是教学研究峰会,此次将于天津举办的教育峰会无论是议题深度还是与会者参与程度,都将是全新的突破和体验,是一次真正兼具教学意义和里程碑式意义的CPD机会。 本次教育峰会不同于传统意义上的教育类研讨活动的关键点在于:议题直击当下教育痛点!


会议的三大主要议题都是针对当前国内中小学教育的痛点所提出。以数学课程差异化教学为例,虽然中国传统的数学教学方法已经在国际上得到了广泛的认可,我国的PISA测试也连续几年名列全世界排名前列, 但创造新思维和批判性思维一直是数学教学的难点与痛点,对于当下教师的教学水平也是提出了新的要求。 特别是作为提倡发展全人教育的双语学校以及国际学校,如何培养学生创造性和批判性思维更是引起教育工作者的高度重视。 因此,本次教育峰会将由具备十多年数学教学经验, 并长期从事国际教育以及双语教育的培训讲师担任。其授课内容将结合其多年从事国际教育的经验,深入浅出地讲解如何将国际课程与地方课程做结合,并同时培养与启发学生的创造性思维和批判性思维。

030同时,数学课程不仅仅只涉及学生的创造性思维和批判性思维,更需要体现差异化教学,而差异化教学往往是对教师的教学水平提出了更高层次的挑战, 没有十几年的教学实践做积累, 往往很难实现。 在本次峰会中,授课团队将整合众多培训师多年教学实践经验,为与会者带来更为直观而又有针对性的讲解内容,深入浅出地讲解如何进行差异化教学。与会者在参加完此峰会后,可以将所学所想直接运用于自己的课堂教学。




本次峰会的所探讨的其他众多议题, 例如教学领导力、校本研究、教学评估以及英语课堂的差异化教学等,都将由教育界大咖为与会者带来极具针对性的授课内容。




这是一次很注重实践的论坛,讲师提到的一些教学方法非常实用, 非常适合迁移到自己的课堂教学中
