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.)
