Dear IB Educator:

A new year is upon us; should you renew your classroom skills and be inspired by leading IB educators?

For over 25 years, ten leading CIBERs in the nation have been offering an intensive professional development opportunity for those of us committed to improving our classroom performance and gaining new skills in teaching international business.

If you are interested in learning from master teachers, updating your knowledge in specific specialties within IB, acquiring latest instructional technologies, and networking with like-minded colleagues, then you should consider participating in this year's IB Pedagogy Workshops, scheduled for June 1-4, 2017, in Atlanta. 

And consider sharing a teaching related resource, experiment, or idea with your colleagues with a Poster presentation.

Please review the information below for details.  Have a most productive new year, and I look forward to seeing you in Atlanta!
