This past weekend, three Senior School teachers, Kyle Prior, Nick Sautin, and Ferdinand Van Zyl, were invited by UBC’s Faculty of Education to be guest instructors for aspiring IB Diploma Programme teachers. Their two-day workshops explored aspects of IB philosophy such as international mindedness and Approaches to Teaching and Learning (ATL) skills, followed by a deep dive into the curriculum, structure, and assessment of their respective DP courses.
Mulgrave is proud that so many of our faculty members are recognised as leaders in IB education, both locally and worldwide. Our teachers are sought after by universities to lead teacher training workshops and supervise and mentor student teachers; present their research and approaches at conferences; and partner with the International Baccalaureate Organisation to deliver professional development workshops, serve as examiners and moderators for IB assessments, participate in curriculum development projects, and serve on accreditation and evaluation teams. In our most recent IB evaluation report (2021), Mulgrave was commended for being "a proactive participant in the IB community, offering mentorship, support, and feedback which adds value to the local and global community, and effectively using these engagements to improve student and professional learning in the school."
