International Baccalaureate: Professional Learning & Capstone Project

The fourth and final course of the OISE Certificate in International Education, International Baccalaureate (Diploma Programme) comprises two distinct components:

  • Professional Learning (three modules) and
  • A Capstone Project

Professional Learning Component:

Throughout the course, you will have the opportunity to collaborate with peers, participate in inquiry-based tasks and reflect on current practice as you:

  • Explore the principles and processes of reflective practice, including the impact of reflection on student learning and improving teaching practices within the IB Diploma Programme
  • Understand the role of collaborative working in planning, implementing and evaluating the IB Diploma Programme’s learning targets
  • Discover the interactive technologies and communities of practice that enable professional engagement amongst IB Diploma Programme practitioners

About the Capstone Project:

You’ll demonstrate the practical knowledge and skills you have acquired throughout the program in the final Capstone Project, as you create a unit of inquiry that aligns with the IB Diploma Programme’s learning targets, mission, and overall philosophy. Your work will be captured through a unit of inquiry portfolio, which will include your written curriculum, assessment components and reflective evaluations of your teaching approach within the unit of inquiry. You’ll be partnered with a practicing IB teacher in an authorized school, who will act as a mentor to guide and assess your practical learning throughout the capstone project.

  • Principles and processes of reflective practice, including the impact of reflection on student learning and improving teaching practices within the IB Diploma Programme
