One-Day Workshop Supporting Increased Capacity in International Schools:
Why Inclusion? Embracing Opportunities and Busting Myths
8:30am – 3:00pm. International schools offer an educational service of exceptionally high quality, and have decades of experience and accumulated expertise in serving globally mobile families. There are no institutions better placed to serve 'the whole family' than high-quality international schools. Historically, though, there has been some reluctance to accepting students with diagnosed learning disabilities beyond the 'mild'. AmCham invites you to attend a one-day workshop dedicated towards busting myths and embracing opportunities to build capacity among Hong Kong's international schools to serve a managed number of students across a spectrum of educational needs.
This one-day session will unpack everything from the moral imperative to the practical implications of inclusion, while touching on the 'business opportunity' for the region to open up its schools to a more diverse range of students. Working collaboratively, participants will understand and overcome obstacles to providing inclusive education while building networks and mechanisms for mutual support. The workshop is suitable for educators in Hong Kong interested in moving towards a more inclusive model. Schools are strongly encouraged to send teams to the workshop. Spaces are limited and will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. Fees include meeting materials, light breakfast and luncheon . Hosted by the Education Committee
