Event description
This online cohort will walk through the development of an IB/PYP transdisciplinary unit to support teachers and coordinators.

About this event

The IB/PYP collaborative planning process is a comprehensive approach to developing curriculum. Transdisciplinary units are purposefully written to provide an inquiry based, concept driven approach to teaching and learning in which student agency is fostered.

This online cohort will walk through the development of a unit of inquiry within the transdisciplinary themes of the Primary Years Programme. Participants will join 4 synchronous sessions (with asynchronous work between sessions) that will reflectively engage in the process of creating their own unit. These interactive sessions will provide participants with resources, examples, conversations and feedback from other members of the group.

Whether you are developing a unit for the first time or are revising an existing unit, you will have an opportunity to consider how you are creating challenging, relevant, significant and engaging experiences for your students.

This event is based off the US Eastern Time Zone (GMT -4). Please use this time when converting to your time zone.
