‘What makes an excellent teacher?’ That was the question explored by Rhonda Bondie, lecturer at the Harvard Graduate School of Education (HGSE) as she kicked off the latest Cambridge Schools Conference with an inspiring keynote video. Dr Bondie explored the use of language, student engagement and lesson planning and gave practical tips and advice on how to create an agile online classroom benefitting all learners.

‘Education in a changing world: Remote teaching and learning’ is the theme of the Cambridge Schools Conference, hosted by global exam board Cambridge Assessment International Education. The conference aims to improve teaching practices whilst the majority of teaching and learning across the world continues to take place online.

Today Dr Bondie is following up on her opening keynote speech by hosting a Q&A session. This session will provide delegates the opportunity to interact with Dr Bondie, by asking questions related to her keynote speech and her wider work.

The conference has had 5,200 registrations, of which 50% of the delegates are first time attendees at a Cambridge Schools Conference. A large number of delegates are schoolteachers as well as senior leaders within education. From Tuesday 20 to Friday 30 April numerous workshops, panel discussions and presentations will take place which will explore and dissect the conference’s theme in more detail.
