LAHORE: More than 220 teachers and school leaders from over 140 Cambridge schools met at the Pakistan Schools Conference held at Avari Lahore on Wednesday.
The conference was hosted by Cambridge Assessment International Education (Cambridge International) and the theme for the event was “Measuring what matters: understanding and improving educational impact”.
“The concept of ‘educational impact’ has become increasingly important in academic research and education debate. No school can make meaningful progress without understanding the effect of its practices on students’ learning,” explained Cambridge International Chief Executive Michael O’Sullivan.
They do this through careful curriculum design, inspiring extra-curricular activities, professional development of teachers and the creation of school environments conducive to learning, he added.
