Nalini Cook, Head of EMEA Research will discuss the meaning of international mindedness in education and our latest research on the topic with a panel of experts from the international education community. Join us live on Zoom, LinkedIn or Facebook on 9th December at 4pm GMT.
The international schools market has evolved considerably over the past 40 years. From fulfilling the needs of expatriate families, to welcoming local students, international schools have continuously developed their mission. How have those changes impacted students and their development of international mindedness? At ISC Research, we decided to explore the topic of international mindedness a little deeper as part of our new report on the international school student profile.
The purpose of the report is to open new conversations about the role of international schools and the international education community in their responsibility towards the development of international mindedness and cultural intelligence. With this in mind, Nalini Cook will be hosting an online discussion on the meaning of international mindedness, with members of our panel:

Starting out as a Humanities teacher in UK Secondary schools, he has spent the last seven years working as a school leader in Jordan and Oman. His research is interested in international mindedness, development and contextualisation in the Middle East.
Nelson Graves, Founder and President of News Decoder and an experienced educator and administrator. Nelson was a correspondent, bureau chief and regional managing editor at Reuters for 24 years, holding posts in Washington, Paris, New Delhi, Kuala Lumpur, Milan and Tokyo.
