Global Summit on Education 2018
Global Summit on Education (GSE) is an annual signature flagship event of GEIST International that has been organized since 2018. It is comprehensive development event held for educators by educators from GEIST International Foundation.
This professional learning education conference features relevant professional development content for all educators – including subject-area teachers, school administrators, counsellors and teachers of international collaboration.
The mission of the GSE, designed for educators by educators, is to share best practices of pedagogy within and beyond the classroom, to network with other innovative thinkers and to continue conversation on student engagement, innovation, technology, instruction, fostering discussion, questioning, reflective leadership and design-thinking within our schools.
Developing nations of the world still lags behind in a comprehensive and effective curriculum for its students. As a result, even though a country is churning out graduates, it is failing to make them sufficiently capable and skilled to face the workplace and development challenges. The aim of the summit is to understand and devise better means to change the education and curriculum scenario to effectively impart knowledge and ensure its practical implementation.
The first edition of Global Summit on Education was held in Dhaka, Bangladesh. It was the first of its kind and GEIST International Foundation closely partnered with the United States Department of State to organize the event.
The theme of the summit was Ensuring Quality and Sustainable Education for All. The two-day event commenced on 23rd March with all the partner countries of GEIST attending the event. The summit held various seminar, discussions, presentation and key note speech to shed light on the necessity of quality and sustainable education.
