International Baccalaureate Options:
Middle Years Programme (IB-MYP) and Diploma Programme (IB-DP)

Secondary teacher candidates selecting these options have an interest in an international education that is concept-based, inquiry-driven and student-centered. Guided by key concepts and transdisciplinary themes, teachers create enriching, hands-on learning opportunities that promote discovery, exploration and thinking about real-world issues.

An IB elective is scheduled August 28 – August 31, 2017. During the year, workshops and seminars (in addition to regular BEd coursework) are provided to enhance understandings about the IB approach and facilitate links to coursework and practica. The IB elective will fulfill the 3-credit elective requirement for the secondary BEd Program (so no elective will need to be taken in Summer 2018, although one may be taken then as an additional course if desired).

There are two International Baccalaureate Options offered for secondary teacher candidates:

  1. IB Middle Years Programme (IB-MYP):
    Teacher candidates in the IB Middle Years Programme will complete an additional 1 credit for their program.
  2. IB Diploma Programme (IB-DP):
    Teacher candidates in the IB Diploma Programme will complete an additional 2 credits for their program.

Please familiarize yourself with each of these options.

How to Apply:

There are very limited seats available in the International Baccalaureate options.

An online application will be available starting the week of May 23, 2017. A link to the online application will be emailed to teacher candidates that same week. Interested teacher candidates must complete the online application form no later than June 2, 2017.

This is not a first-come, first-served process; selection is based on a number of variables including teachable subject/s and practicum placement location. Those applicants selected for an IB option will be notified by email as will those who were not (and will proceed with the regular secondary program based on their teachable subject/s).
