IB Teachers Conference 2013Firstly, save the date. We’ve been told that this is the third biggest IB Conference in the world, and at 200,000 Rp it is most certainly the most economical. Next year, GJIS are hosting this event.

Secondly, I would like to invite any and all staff (or outside providers) who would like to present at our Annual IB Teachers’ Conference which will be on Saturday 28th September 2013. Your topics could be pedagogical or they can be IB topics.
