The Global Teachers Institute (GTI) is excited to be hosting its annual Axis Education Summit after the long break caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. We are looking forward to hosting our pre-service and in-service teachers, leaders in education, and all-important stakeholders at our Hybrid Axis Education Summit!

The theme for this year’s Summit is “ReviveRefresh and Regenerate. Education in the Post-Pandemic Era”. How do we revive, refresh and regenerate the education system to adequately adjust to the learning demands of the post-pandemic 21st-century era? Delegates will be encouraged to debate, examine and create solutions to reinvigorate learning in the South African schooling system and beyond. The call to regenerate education is also an open invitation to all stakeholders to develop short, medium, and long-term solutions to the challenges brought about by COVID-19 and the aftershocks that have resulted in various losses for the education sector around the world.

The summit will explore  a selection of topical issues post the Covid-19 pandemic such as:
  • Promoting digital equity in education. Digital equity is an all-encompassing term as it includes both access to and the ability to use digital resources effectively.
  • Socio-emotional learning and other critical issues that were amplified by the pandemic.
  • Financial education and wellness for stakeholders in education.
  • The Global Majority Mindset: Black teachers as transformative leaders.
This experience will provide delegates with the opportunity to attend sessions in-person to connect and collaborate.
Streaming sessions will be available online for those who prefer to participate virtually.

Today’s world is rapidly changing. New trends, processes and systems are being developed at a phenomenal pace. To keep pace teachers, schools and organisations must collaborate to bring a new educational story to reality. Each year GTI is committed to hosting a multi-day convergence of students, teachers and education leaders from throughout South Africa and around the world.

Through a series of concurrent events each tailored to a particular audience (e.g. pre-service teachers) that culminates in the cross-cutting Axis Forum, the Summit aims to allow educators at any stage in their career an opportunity to develop, collaborate, across age and professional and work towards a new vision for education with other educational stakeholders. The Summit is organised by GTI in collaboration with a number of partners and sponsors who with the following aims:

  • To share, learn and grow with their peers and master educators from around the world.
  • To reflect deeply on teaching practices while developing the necessary skills for transformative 21st-century teaching.
  • To share and integrate effective practices into broader national education policy decisions.
  • To give leaders a greater understanding of themselves and their personal and professional motives and how to use oneself as an instrument of leadership in the 21st century.
  • To engage in dynamic conversations and create new platforms and initiatives to drive educational transformation.

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.
