InspirED 2011 Education Conference


On September 3rd and 4th, hundreds of educators from across and beyond India will gather in Mumbai for the second annual InspirED conference, a two-day event for educators and stakeholders in education, focusing on standards K-10.

After a successful conference last year that brought together hundreds of educators for a series of workshops, panel discussions and presentations around the theme of innovation in education, InspirED 2011 will explore how to drive positive transformation in education. With over 40 workshops to choose from, the conference will present some of the leading minds in shaping positive transformations in education today.

These include Steven Farr, author of Teaching as Leadership and Teach For America's Chief Knowledge Officer; Norman Atkins, Founder and CEO of Teacher U and Founder of Uncommon Schools in USA; Anthony Jackson, Vice President of Education at Asia Society in USA and Head of Asia Society’s Partnership for Global Learning; Madhav Chavan, President and CEO of the Pratham Education Foundation; and Umesh Malhotra, Founder and CEO of Hippocampus Learning Centres. Educators from across the country and from a range of schools — from rural to urban, and private to government-run — will have the opportunity to engage with each other and leaders from the education field.

InspirED 2011 is focused on "Transformation in Education." It explores the different components that foster transformation for students and schools across countries. InspirED 2011 will bring together speakers who have been exemplary in their work over the years and instrumental in stirring traditional education.
