Informed by the values of the Learner Profile, an IB education:
   centres on learners
   develops effective approaches to teaching and learning
   works within global contexts
   explores significant content.

Working together, these four characteristics define an IB education.

Judith Fabian will talk about recent developments in the alignment of IB’s 4 programmes, focusing on the alignment of the core elements of each programme as presented in What is an IB education, recently published by the IB. There will be an emphasis on developments in approaches to teaching and learning, and participants will be invited to reflect on the importance of pedagogy in developing an internationally minded school community.
