Discover IB Exchange

Last updated:

IB Exchange is a free, new and interactive platform where IB educators can access thousands of resources to support teaching in their programme and subject, connect with and learn from peers, and elevate their expertise by contributing their teaching and learning insights within a global network of educators.


What do educators gain from IB Exchange

  • High-quality unit plans, lessons, classroom activities, links to high quality primary and secondary sources, and other resources to support outstanding IB teaching, curated from educators around the world.
  • Short, practical videos, podcasts, blogs, and presentations targeted to Approaches to Teaching and other aspects of IB pedagogy. 
  • Moderated, dynamic communities of practice where educators can exchange teaching materials, share best practices, and connect with peer coaches for specific, practical advice—all in a supportive space led by IB teachers for IB teachers. 
  • Learning modules designed to help educators master key competencies from the IB Teacher Capabilities Framework and earn micro credentials attesting to their mastery.
