How do Your Learners Learn?
How do your students know when they have learned something? What strategies do they use to learn something? This session will explore the use of epistemic metacognition and how it can improve learning. Ideas from academic literature in this area will be shared, leading to a definition of epistemic metacognition, the benefits it has for learning and examples of how teachers can use it effectively in their classrooms to help their students justify what and how they have learned.

Moving From International Mindedness to Active Global Competence
This session will explore the differences between international and global competence, and how the move towards global competence includes both the development of an understanding and empathetic mindset as well as developing the ability to take action to create meaningful change. We will question whether developing an understanding of the other is enough to ensure that learners are developing the ability to be agents of change and take positive action.
