Subject-specific seminars

Last updated:

At the beginning of each calendar year, the IB publishes new subject guides, and organizes subject-specific seminars (SSS) to help educators understand and implement them.

The SSS are professional development events offering comprehensive information and materials for experienced educators in those subject areas to fully familiarize themselves with new changes in the guide. It also offers a unique opportunity for educators to engage with staff and/or members of the curriculum review team.
