Do you remember what it was like when you attended the International Teachers Programme?

The practical tips and hints from world-class faculty?

The insights from your teaching laboratory session?

The sheer enthusiasm you felt to put things into practice when you got back home?

Well, this year the ITP is going a step further. We want to help you take another leap forward.

RECONNECT 2021: The ITP Alumni Conference

WHERE: London Business School

Whether it’s been a year since you took ITP, 10 years, 20 years or even 30 years, it’s time to get that ITP feeling back. To reconnect with the spirit of ITP and to recharge yourself as a teacher. To look again at your teaching style.

The Alumni Conference is a conference by ITP alumni for ITP alumni.

And this year we’re asking some of our top faculty to share their knowledge exclusively with you.

Starting with these 4 in-depth, interactive sessions…

How to benefit even further from networking

Need help networking? Then pay close attention to Nana von Bernuth who is co-directing ITP at INSEAD from 2021. She’s leading a session on ‘The Power of Networking’.

How to speed up team working in radically diverse groups of students

If you’re working with radically diverse students or executives, and you want to accelerate how well they work together, then Christina Sambrook from the University of Birmingham, herself an ITP alumna, will be sharing the lessons she’s learned in her session: ‘Group Storming in Fast Forward’.

How to use your teaching as a source of innovative research

If you’re looking for innovative sources for your next research project, another ITP alumnus, Paul Dewick formerly with Manchester Metropolitan University, shares his insights on how to use your teaching as a basis of world-leading research.

How to survive and succeed in executive education

Finally Steven Sonsino from London Business School will share 3 of the radical changes affecting executive education today, including:

a) deep insights about the globalisation of our executive participants;
b) his concerns about and the surprising benefits of the hybrid competitors we face from outside the business school world;
c) some of the strategies he’s using to promote and support execed, from blogs to podcasts and more.

If you’re planning to devote more time to executive education now, or in the near future, this session will be valuable for your institution and for you personally.


Because this is an ITP conference, you should expect the unexpected.

Put your questions direct to faculty

As well as updating your skills with the most surprising, proven teaching strategies – and their results – you’ll have a chance to quiz our faculty in open session and privately. Explore which of these up-to-the-minute strategies and tactics could work for you.

Learn critical implementation skills

Learn how you too can apply the lessons of ITP by sharing the additional insights from Professor Andrea Galeotti. His journey to implement the lessons of ITP within a single academic year turned his programme feedback around dramatically. Now he wants to inspire you to do the same.

Build your faculty network still further

Attending the alumni conference 2020 is a chance to rekindle old friendships with like-minded faculty. But you’ll also make new connections – with alumni from other programmes – and with the current ITP attendees at London Business School.
