Newsletters from the IB

In 2013, the IB began production of three web-based newsletters that deliver all the news and information about IB programmes—professional development, events, research and more—in one place. These new informational resources are:

IB Global News, published five times a year, provides an array of news and information about IB programmes, professional development, research and other activities. In addition to IB World School coordinators and heads of school (who automatically receive the newsletter), parents, teachers, allied professionals at prospective IB World Schools, individuals at education-related organizations and colleagues at universities are welcome to subscribe. Subscriptions are cost-free and available on an opt-in basis using the “subscribe” button, above. Find the latest version of IB Global News on the shelf above. Schools can nominate students, teachers and schools for the featured articles that appear in each issue by sending an email to

IB in Practice, published five times a year in alternating months with IB Global News, tailored to the IB’s community of educators, teachers, coordinators and examiners. This newsletter focuses on IB teaching practice and provides current details on IB curriculum, assessment, programme news and IBEN. Coordinators and heads of schools are encouraged to share these newsletters with their teaching staff.

IB News Update, published three times per year exclusively to IB Heads of school.
