2021 : BSIS Virtual Symposium

The aim of the symposium is to dig deeper into a number of topics that have a clear link with Impact and that have been brought to the fore even more during the difficult year we now have behind us. Each session will start with video testimonials on the particular session topic of schools that have been through the BSIS process. The session itself will be moderated by the different members of the BSIS Symposium steering committee. The format of the whole series will alternate interactive online plenary sessions and breakout groups, supported by platforms to share feedback and ideas.

The symposium will be organised in a form of online series and will take place every Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 15 April- 30 April at 13:00- 14:30 CEST. Please see the programme below for more details. More info
