Teachers' Conference 2013

To all ETC Delegates and presenters,

We are pleased to announce the 11th annual EARCOS Teachers' Conference (ETC2013) in Concordia International School Shanghai scheduled for March 27 for the preconferences and March 28 to 30, 2013 main conference.

We have a host of excellent keynote speakers and workshop presenters. Our keynoters are: Liv Arnesen, Michael Furdyk, and Zoe Weil. We think the conference will prove to be professionally stimulating and will provide you with an opportunity for networking and building camaraderie.

This year registration will be accomplished online. The registration form can be accessed from this link [REGISTRATION CLOSED] Each school will receive a designated username and password to access to the registration form. All required information is self-explanatory. The username and password is given only to Teacher Representative so EARCOS will deal only with one person from each school.

If you have any questions, please contact the EARCOS office or email Elaine Repatacodo, ETC Coordinator at

* A gentle reminder to delegates who have children accompanying them to Shanghai. Workshops and social events at the ETC are designed and intended for adults. We all love children, but unfortunately they should not accompany you to workshops and social functions. Thank you for your understanding.

All the best and we are glad to be going to Shanghai, China.. See you soon and hope for good weather! ;-)
