Course Description

This course focuses on the learner and learning in relation to developing knowledge, understanding, skills, and attitudes in their students. Students will develop a deeper understanding of the IB programme curriculum frameworks and the processes that underpin them.  Students will develop practical knowledge of how the IB programmes are designed, interpreted and implemented.  This course has four primary domains: a focus on international education and the role and philosophy of the IB programmes; the development of curriculum frameworks (aims and objectives); curriculum and instructional design; and curriculum articulation.  

NOTE:  This course is open to all students eligible for the International Educator Certificate program.  However, for those who are commencing their teacher education program (e.g., Ontario B.Ed. Year 1 students), it is highly recommended that you first complete IEC 001 - Teaching and Learning before enrolling in this course.   
Once registration is submitted, students must specify their intended DP specialization: 

  • Studies in Language and Literature
  • Language Acquisition
  • Individuals and Society
  • Sciences
  • Mathematics
  • The Arts

Please identify your intended specialization via email to ib@uwindsor.ca as soon as possible after registering.  


OSAP Funding for IB Courses

The Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP) now includes funding for hundreds of micro-credential programs. The micro-credentials plan ensures loans and grants will be available to more learners to rapidly upskill and reskill for in-demand jobs. Please be advised that IB courses are on the list of eligible courses for OSAP funding. Please view the Micro-credential website for details and eligibility. https://www.ontario.ca/page/micro-credentials-ontarios-postsecondary-schools.
