Subject-specific seminars

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. 

Following the publication of new guides for 2021, a number of subject-specific seminars will be organised for Middle Years Programme and Diploma Programme subjects as follows:

Middle Years Programme

  • Interdisciplinary teaching and learning in the MYP
  • Personal project
  • SSS are expected in 2022 for MYP Arts

Diploma Programme

  • No SSS events in 2021
  • SSS are expected in 2022 for Theatre, Classical languages, Literature and performance, Business management, Digital society
