XII International research-to-practice conference

Nazarbayev Intellectual Schools AEO

Intellectual Podcast №1. Андреас Шляйхер

Dear teachers, colleagues and friends!

As you might know, in 2020, due to the unforeseen circumstances we made a decision to cancel the XII International research-to-practice Conference titled “Family, school and community: thinking and acting for a child”.

We know that the Kazakhstani expert community, our teachers, and foreign colleagues eagerly wait for the annual meeting to discuss current issues in education. However, organising a Conference, even in a virtual format, poses great risks we would not be able to manage. Having analysed the risks, we concluded that the most responsible decision we could make is to cancel this year’s Conference.

Nonetheless, as we promised, we are not leaving you without insightful content.

Please welcome the first episode of the new Intellectual Podcast we organised with speakers of the Conference and Kazakhstani education experts. The first guest of the Intellectual Podcast by Intellectual Schools is Andreas Schleicher, OECD Director for Education and Skills.

You can access all of the podcast episodes here.
