To fulfil the criteria for completion, participants must attend all sessions of the workshop, as confirmed by attendance lists submitted to the IB post-event. An additional independent learning assignment must be completed and submitted through the IB’s online learning platform within seven days of the conclusion of the face-to-face component of the workshop. This independent assignment will vary by workshop and may require up to 3 hours. A certificate of attendance will be awarded to all participants who successfully meet the criteria.
