Course Description

If you’ve always dreamt of teaching in international settings, this course could be the launching pad you need. You’ll explore the historical background and contemporary world of international education, schools, curriculum, programs, ideas and students.

This course, designed for teaching professionals, explores the concept of internationalisation with a specific focus on the International Baccalaureate (IB) suite of programs, including Primary Years Program, Middle Years Program and Diploma Program. 

This is a stand-alone course that examines and critiques a range of international curriculums and provides connections to the organisations driving these programs. You will also gain the professional development requirements associated with the International Baccalaureate Certificate in Teaching and Learning.
