Learning by Design
17-19 March 2017
The International School of Brussels, Belgium
ISB Learning By Design 2017 is a call to re-imagine the way schools facilitate learning in a culture characterized by open knowledge systems, inclusive educational communities, and rapid social change.
The International School of Brussels (ISB) invites you to join this conversation.
Engage conference participants in transformative learning about education in the digital world.
Connect conference participants with a community actively engaged in exploring new and innovative ways to prepare students for their futures.
Innovate through a process of exploration and engagement with modern learning in an open and disruptive time of dynamic change.
Empower learners to embrace the learning potential of new technologies and approaches to learning in order to become positive contributors to the global society.
The conference will reflect these ideas using an innovative schedule to provide:
* Thought-provoking, open conversations and facilitated explorations of modern learning contexts *
* Experience of the types of active, technology-infused, authentic learning experiences crucial for modern learners *
* Space and time to reflect and process these ideas in the context of participant’s current needs *
* A network of like-minded practitioners to support the implementation of innovative practice in international schools *
The conference is designed for teachers, school heads, trustees, and administrators. Conference participants will be grouped in cohorts with dedicated learning conversations.
Screening of Most Likely to Succeed
The conference will also include a screening of the education documentary Most Likely to Succeed by Greg Whiteley.

The story of a design
At ISB, we believe in learning by design and regard our students and faculty as key collaborators in this process. So we asked both our students and faculty to help us develop the key visual imagery for this conference. Hundreds of students and many faculty participated and came up with a wide range of visual ideas and illustrations. We are very grateful to Erin Cumming (Grade 1 in 2015-2016). Her creative ideas directly inspired the key visual identity of this event.
