Event guides and policies
Please read our cancellation policy prior to completing your registration:
Any cancellation occurring 22 days or more prior to the first day of the IB event will incur a credit note for the full amount of the registration fee. Cancellations made 21 days or less prior to the first day of an IB event will incur a penalty of 100% of the registration fee.
In the unlikely event that IB must cancel an IB event, the total amount of the registration fee will be refunded, or a credit note provided for the full amount of the registration fee.
The IB reserves the right to cancel a workshop due to low enrollment or unforeseen circumstances. We will make every effort to give participants as much advance notice as possible of any changes to their enrollment. In the unlikely event that the IB must cancel a workshop, we will refund any paid registration fees to your school account, which can be used toward other IB invoices or workshops. Credit card payments will be refunded to the card used at time of registration.
If you cancel your registration after the 22-day deadline but wish to request a refund, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org. We may process your refund if you are unable to attend due unforeseen reasons such as the death of a close relative, or serious illness.
Please also read our Completion requirements prior to completing your registration.
Please note that whilst you do not have to be online at a specific time, all participants move from one module to the next at the same time and are required to provide peer-to-peer feedback in active online discussions, therefore it is important that participants are available to be online for at least 4 hours per week for all 4 weeks to ensure eligibility for a certificate.
If a participant will not have internet access for an entire week or more during the workshop, we would advise they register for an alternative date.
For all of your online workshops queries, please contact email@example.com.
Workshops will be conducted in the language specified. Participants’ command of the teaching language must be such as to allow for full and unaided participation.
All of our online workshops are of 4 week duration and require a minimum 16 hours of workshop time. The format of the workshop is as follows:
- Participants will be expected to dedicate four hours per module to complete the workshop requirements and earn a certificate.
- Participants will need to be actively engaged in the workshop to meet the completion requirements.
- Workshops are not self-paced, and will follow the general format of:
o WEEK 1: Module 1
o WEEK 2: Module 2
o WEEK 3: Module 3
o WEEK 4: Module 4 and Conclusion
After the official closing deadline (3 weeks before the start date), please contact IB support to request late registration. Late registration requests will only be considered within 5 days from closing deadline and are not guaranteed acceptance. The decision as to whether a late registration request is accepted will be taken by the Online PD team on a case by case basis. This depends on the number of existing registrations and facilitator availability.
Late registrations are subject to a surcharge of USD 70.
