THE EDUCATION INNOVATION SUMMIT (NEDIS)
NEDIS Education Innovation Summit is an annual educator sector stakeholders’ convening organised and hosted by The Education Partnership (TEP) Centre. This event is designed as a platform to highlight the role of education innovations in solving challenges facing the delivery of accessible and high-quality education. Since its inception, conversations at NEDIS have explored new, exciting and sustainable approaches for increasing access to quality education, especially for the marginalized and underserved. Discussions at the summit underscore the importance of identifying and systematically scaling innovations such that they become more deeply embedded in policy systems and reach more beneficiaries.
Now in its 5th year, the summit has become a key event in the Nigeria's education sector event calendar, convening stakeholders from government, research and academia, development and funding organisations, corporations, civil society organisations and a broad range of education innovators for two days of rich discourse, knowledge sharing, learning, capacity development and networking.
The fifth NEDIS will hold in Lagos, Nigeria on the 4th and 5th of July 2019. To register, please click here
What to Expect at NEDIS 5
Exploring the central theme of Strengthening Education Systems; Delivering Effective Teaching and Learning, the 2019 edition of the summit will convene stakeholders in Africa’s education ecosystem to explore possible pathways for strengthening the systemic management of education and providing effective and inclusive teaching and learning on the continent. This year's summit will convene 500 stakeholders drawn from government, research and academia, development and funding organisations, corporations, civil society organisations and a broad range of education innovators for two days of rich discourse, knowledge sharing, learning, capacity development and networking.
NEDIS 5 will feature:
- Engaging plenary and breakout discussion sessions
- Capacity development opportunities including master-classes led by sector experts
- An exhibition of innovative education products and services
- An education innovation showcase and recognition ceremony
- Networking cocktails
The conceptual framework for discussions at NEDIS draws on Saunders’ (2000) synthesis of eight ‘domains’ which together determine the effectiveness of teaching and learning at the level of the school. These domains are:
- Curriculum and assessment of learning
- Teacher supply, professional development and support
- School leadership, internal organisation and culture
- Wellbeing, attendance and motivation of all pupils
- Links and partnerships with parents and community
- Accountability mechanisms and processes including school governance
- Quality assurance and support systems especially at local level
- The physical environment (location, health, safety, equipment)
With a focus on the school as a context, this framework does not ignore the inter-relatedness of other cross-cutting factors which influence learning. Rather, it draws upon these relationships, focusing on how the effectiveness of the schooling process can be enhanced in its core mandate of teaching and learning. The agenda will therefore also address critical themes including funding, education policy, communication and the role of technology as a disrupter.
