The countdown for the global movement of empowering every school to drive sustainable and inclusive counselling is right around the corner with the launch of the fourth edition of the 2019 Annual International Career and College Counselling (IC3) Conference.
As the world becomes increasingly globalised with the shifting education scenario, the theme of the conference this year is: 'Finding the Elusive Fit: Navigating Domestic and Global Opportunities'.
The event is scheduled to take place in one of the most preferred education hubs of the country - Mumbai, on 28-29 August 2019 at the Grand Hyatt. With over a 300 percent growth in attendance from 2016, the conference is expected to witness participation from 35 plus countries and anticipates over 1000 plus educators from across the globe. Ashoka University will be the co-host for the two-day conference in Mumbai.
Whom Can You Meet There?
A one-of-a-kind global platform of educators, the IC3 Conference will attract attendees from India, South Asia, Southeast Asia, the Middle East, Australia, and New Zealand, among other countries for a collaborative dialogue on counselling and admissions practices focused on student success.
Moreover, noteworthy schools such as Aditya Birla World Academy, American School of Bombay, the Bombay International School, Garodia International Centre for Learning Mumbai, Dhirubhai Ambani International School, Oberoi International School, SVKM's JV Parekh International School, Universal Education, Utpal Sanghvi Global School, and Vibgyor Group of Schools have joined forces as host schools for the event.
What Can You Get?
The IC3 Conference will feature over 45 breakout sessions, insightful keynote addresses by leading education experts, planned networking opportunities, and high school/university fairs, exclusively for educators.
The IC3 Awards that felicitate schools, counsellors, and universities for their outstanding contributions to the field of career and college counselling would be announced during the main conference as well.
The event will also see the release of a timely report by IC3 and IIE that highlights the global flow of knowledge and talent especially in the form of students who travel abroad in the light of an environment of higher costs and growing competition for college seats.
IC3 along with the College Board will also host two pre-conference workshops on August 26 and 27 in Mumbai, which will provide thematic, skills-based training for professionals responsible for guiding students from India to world-class higher education opportunities. The Pre-conference Workshops are ideal for administrators and college guidance counsellors.
IC3 aims to empower high schools with professional development opportunities to ensure that students find the best answers to questions like "what to study," "where to study," and "how to make it happen."
