Event description
Curious about the upcoming changes in MYP interdisciplinary learning and assessment?! Join a cohort with global educators to learn more.

About this event

Over the course of four learning modules, spread out over a four-month period, participants will learn about the changes in the MYP interdisciplinary guide and consider potential entry points into developing ideas for IDUs that support the new objectives. Tips and a sample unit will be provided to help participants envision the expectations for developing each section of an MYP interdisciplinary unit plan.

This MiniPD event will engage participants in a “flipped” learning model that involves a combination of asynchronous and synchronous online experiences.

  • Before each synchronous session, there will be a video presentation to view and questions can be submitted.
  • During the synchronous session, the focus will be on clarification of any submitted questions, and deeper discussion and idea generation in breakout rooms.
  • After the synchronous session, participants will reflect and can optionally access extension resources.

During the month between synchronous sessions, participants will have time to apply their learning as they develop their own interdisciplinary units.

Asynchronous content will be available 3 weeks before the first session.
