On Thursday, March 2nd, please join fellow conference attendees for a very Miami happy hour in the heart of Little Havana featuring University of Cambridge Professor Emeritus John MacBeath. Expect libations, light hors d’oeuvres and live salsa.

Drawing on research and development in the USA, European, Asian and African countries, Professor John MacBeath will explore five key principles which have been shown to lie at the heart of effective leadership and enhanced student achievement. Each of the following five principles offers a challenge to policy makers, to school leaders, classroom teachers, to students and parents: maintaining a focus on learning; sustaining a learning dialogue; creating an environment for learning; sharing leadership and reframing accountability.

Conference Themes
