IBSC Seminar Series
IBSC Ideas Lab invites members to connect virtually using the free online tool Zoom for three one-hour sessions to discuss topics focused on boys and boys’ schools.
Designed as an interactive exchange among colleagues, IBSC Ideas Lab engages dedicated educators who learn and grow together. Each session starts with a 10-minute introduction from a global guest to jumpstart a facilitated conversation on the topic. Together we surface fresh ideas and build mutual support structures and enduring professional friendships.
IBSC partners with One Schoolhouse to bring the exciting world of global online learning to all of our members. These professional development opportunities allow boys’ educators to explore new teaching paradigms with a cohort of colleagues from around the globe. The flexible schedule allows you to delve into the innovative coursework on your own time, whenever it's most convenient for you.
The Elephant in the Room
Miguel Dionis has dedicated his entire life to the world of education for boys at Viaró Global School (Spain).
Our outstanding, learned executive director, David Armstrong, will be stepping down from his role in June. The coming IBSC Virtual Conference will provide fitting opportunity to record and celebrate David’s loyal, imaginative service to IBSC and the boys we serve.
This on-demand class launches participating teachers and schools into a space where they can develop and implement programs that encourage boys to read. Dive deep into recent research and also investigate practical ideas for engaging boys in reading, improving their reading abilities, and deepening their love for books.
IBSC openly and genuinely affirms all efforts to end racial inequity and social injustice. In the ongoing pursuit to foster diverse, global learning communities that recognize the inherent value and dignity of each person, the IBSC board of trustees officially stated our position in August 2020.
Join educators and parents from IBSC schools around the globe to examine issues impacting boys today. The four-part series spans six months, with a keynote speaker discussing each timely topic.
Open to educators and parents at IBSC member schools, the series proves valuable to anyone teaching or raising boys of all ages.
Each session in the series includes a 45-minute, prerecorded keynote address followed by an asynchronous conversation with fellow participants and speakers on a discussion board. You have access to this content and conversation for three consecutive days. Comment on the keynote, interact with the speaker, share your own resources that may benefit others, and learn from the information global colleagues and parents contribute.
