The Global Teachers Institute is excited to host the annual GTI Axis Summit
from 2 to 4 July 2019
at the Funda UJabule Teaching School at the University of the Johannesburg Soweto Campus.
The Summit is an annual convergence of students, teachers and school leaders from throughout South Africa and around the world.
The GTI Axis Summit is designed as a community of practice, where all voices are valued, encouraged to participate,
and where every attendee can make a meaningful contribution.
A place where everyone is an expert, and experienced practitioners and novices share and
contribute to growing everyone’s body of knowledge.
We are inviting all aspiring and in-service teachers, school leaders and anyone with an interest in education in South Africa to join us as we connect and create a platform for change in education for South Africa and the world.

Everyone agrees that our education system in South Africa and the world is in serious need of change.
But what are the key levers to make that change a reality?
This year’s theme is:
connect + create = change.
At the Summit, participants will explore ways of
turning classrooms into creative spaces for learning, and be challenged to make these spaces sites
where learners can connect both with each other and with the wider local and global
communities in which they find themselves.
We aim at the Summit to build a community of educators who commit
to become active change agents in our schools, our communities, our country and the world at large.
2 JULY - CONNECTION ZONES
Day 1 will feature a host of Connection Zones, where participants can engage in small groups in a range of creative activities (from facilitated discussions, dance/movement, improvised theatre and a maker space) where active participation is encouraged, all voices are valued, and where every attendee can make a meaningful contribution.
There will also be a choice of Discussion Panels in the afternoon where you can participants can engage with some of the more pressing issues in education.
3 JULY - COMMUNITIES OF PRACTICE
On Day 2, participants will have a choice of a wide variety of community of practice workshops, which will explore topics such as creativity in the classroom, building connections in and out the classroom and how educators can turn their schools into levers of change in promoting an equitable, just and inclusive society.
4 JULY - TEACH BACK SESSIONS
On Day 3, participants will put the two days of learning into practice through a series of Teach Back Sessions, where they will work collaboratively in groups to create and implement short and fun lessons based on what they have learned during the Summit.
The South African Extraordinary Schools Coalition will also be holding their quarterly meeting in the morning, and their will also be a Digital Masterclass limited to 30 participants hosted by Via Afrika.
