Mid-Atlantic Association of IB World Schools

Subject Bootcamp

September 25, 2021

The Mid-Atlantic Association of IB World Schools is pleased to offer the 2021 Subject Bootcamp.

Because of the overwhelming popularity of last year’s virtual boot camp, IBMA is going to run a virtual boot camp again during the weekend of September 25th, 2021. 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 over the course of the weekend on September 25th. Facilitators and participants will work together to determine the most optimal schedule.

The IBMA Subject Bootcamp is designed for new teachers 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).

The Bootcamp does not count towards the requirement for official IB teacher training.

NEW THIS YEAR: Before you register, you will need to know the personal email address of each participant. We will be sending communications about the training as well as certificates of attendance upon completion of the sessions to these personal emails.

The cost of the Subject Bootcamp is $150 per person. Registration may be made with a credit card or by check. Registration is open July 1, 2021
