Congratulations to Kori Brown of The Haverford School (United States) for winning the 2022 IBSC Action Research Award for completing highly innovative action research projects that make a valuable contribution to the IBSC Action Research community.
Teaching & Learning
IBSC brings together educators and school leaders from around the globe to develop and share best practices in educating boys.
Through specific global research initiatives undertaken directly by IBSC and in cooperative projects where teachers and administrators collaborate on specific IBSC Action Research topics, we aspire to give our members research-driven, practical knowledge that can inform their teaching and program design. Outcomes are shared at our annual meetings, conferences, and workshops, and here online.
IBSC Action Research: More than 200 teachers and administrators—at schools in Africa, Australia, Canada, China, India, New Zealand, South Africa, Singapore, Spain, the United Kingdom, and the United States--have contributed to two-year IBSC Action Research projects. Each year since 2005, IBSC has identified a topic for school-based research, ranging from global citizenship to masculinity. Action Research reports offer detailed information that can be put to use in your school and/or classroom. (Read more.)
IBSC Global Research Initiatives: In 2008, the IBSC published the first of its commissioned Global Research Initiatives, working with professional educators/researchers and teachers and students at schools in every region that we serve, to answer fundamental questions about pedagogy and best practices in teaching boys. To date, five in-depth reports have been published, mostly recently on strategies for Relational Teaching. Currently, researchers are addressing the topic of Character Education in Schools for Boys, with a report expected to be published in 2018. (Read more.)
After the 2022 IBSC Annual Conference, bring the plenary session speakers back to your school with videos recorded during the live event. If you cannot join us in Dallas, learn from these illuminating speakers on your own device using the Virtual Matchbox platform after the conference. If you do join us in Dallas (we hope so!), you can purchase access to the videos for your entire faculty and staff for one low price.
