More flexible approaches to learning generally will be hugely important topics in education over the next few years. Concept-based education focuses on big ideas, on helping students to understand why something is important, and how to connect ideas across disciplines. This has always been a major part of the PYP Programme, and Dr. David Weber will show how it is being strengthened and implemented in the DP, MYP, and IBCC Programmes as well. There will also be a much greater focus on how students learn with Approaches to Learning adopted as a key component in all four programmes. The breakout sessions will concentrate on this particular element of Concept-based education.
