GTI Axis Summit 2019

The Global Teachers Institute has taken the difficult decision to cancel the annual GTI Axis Summit 2020 in the light of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The GTI Axis Summit is designed as a community of practice, where all voices are valued, encouraged to participate, and where every attendee can make a meaningful contribution. A place where everyone is an expert, and experienced practitioners and novices share and contribute to growing everyone’s body of knowledge.

Last year’s Summit took place from 2 to 4 July 2019 at the University of Johannesburg’s Funda Ujabule Primary School, the theme was: connect + create = change. The summit explored ways of turning classrooms into creative spaces for learning, and challenge participants to make these spaces sites where learners can connect both with each other and with the wider local and global communities in which they find themselves.

From the Summit, GTI released a series of 8 knowledge products aimed to equip educators to become active change agents in our schools, our communities, our country and the world at large.  Click on the product below to download it.
