Klos­ter­neu­burg Inter­na­tio­nal School is a member of the Asso­cia­tion of Cen­tral Euro­pean IB Schools (ACES). In this capa­city KIS hosted a work­shop and lea­dership con­fe­rence at our school in fall 2018. We wel­co­med repre­sen­ta­ti­ves from 33 schools in Aus­tria, Croa­tia, Hun­gary, Poland, Slo­va­kia, Slove­nia and the Czech Repu­blic. On Thurs­day eve­ning a pre-con­fe­rence treat was orga­nised: The par­ti­ci­pants met at Heu­ri­ger Ober­mann in Grin­zing to enjoy good wine, food and shop talk. On the next day, the US-based, renow­ned edu­ca­tor, pre­sen­ter, con­sul­tant and author Tim Burns joined us as our guest spea­ker and worked with the par­ti­ci­pants in the ple­nary and break­out ses­si­ons. After Tim’s ins­pi­ring pre­sen­ta­tion and work­shop on »Mind­ful Activity in a Digi­tally Dis­trac­ted World« the par­ti­ci­pants split up in groups to dis­cuss pedago­gi­cal deve­lop­ment, pro­blems and obst­a­cles schools have to over­come when deli­ver­ing the IB pro­gramme. In the eve­ning the opening cere­mony of the IB Global Con­fe­rence Vienna com­ple­ted an infor­ma­tive, enter­tai­ning and edu­ca­tio­nal day at KIS.
