The Second Annual World Summit of IFNTF will be held from May 3-5, 2018 in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. Following the successful first summit in Birmingham, UK in February 2017 where the theme was Defining Teaching Excellence within the Disciplines, the 2018 summit will focus on Nurturing Teaching Excellence across Disciplines. The summit will bring together award-winning teachers, educators and students from around the globe to engage in thought-provoking presentations and panel discussions on nurturing and enhancing teaching excellence. The key areas of the summit will revolve around the following key task areas, namely, creating a culture of teaching excellence, high-impact pedagogies, student engagement strategies and impactful teaching.
The summit will be hosted at Dalhousie University (www.dal.ca) and will coincide with the year during which the university celebrates its 200th year anniversary. Dalhousie is home to more than 18,800 students and is known internationally for its welcoming atmosphere, pioneering research and innovative academic programs on Canada’s east coast.
