Online PD

The International Baccalaureate offers innovative online professional development (PD) with more than 250 workshops that cover all four programmes, including many in French and Spanish. Last year alone, 10,000 teachers from over 160 countries attended IB workshops online.

Online PD is a cost-effective professional development opportunity that you can access anywhere without incurring travel and other costs. 

All of our online workshops teach the same concepts as those presented in the equivalent face-to-face workshops and count equally toward authorization or evaluation.

Our affordable pricing structure offers uncompromising quality and is especially appealing to schools with large numbers of teachers wishing to develop professionally and improve student outcomes. Carefully designed course materials empower you with new ideas and strategies to implement in your classroom, and the learning approach promotes active and full participation and collective knowledge-building.
