The Mid-Atlantic Association of IB World Schools is pleased to offer the 2022 Subject Bootcamp in two versions: in-person on Sept. 17, and virtual on Oct. 1, 2022.
The IBMA bootcamp does not replace or count for official IB training, but is designed to provide teachers new to your building or subject an overview of the nuts and bolts or learning/teaching, IB philosophies, and organization of their courses. Experienced and recommended facilitators from around the Mid-Atlantic region and beyond will be sharing their expertise in three two-hour sessions.
The IBMA Subject Bootcamp is designed for new teachers and administrators in current IB schools who will not have a chance to attend IB training due to time or monetary constraints.
The Subject Bootcamp would also be appropriate for established IB schools who are considering adding a new subject and would like to hear an overview to see if that subject would best meet their needs. Sessions will be held for a wide range of subjects for all IB Programmes (PYP, MYP, DP, and CP).
