The DP ESS course and creating great field trips with Guru Charan Kumar
Show Notes

In this episode we talk to Guru Charan Kumar of India about his work teaching the IB Diploma ESS Course but mostly we talk about taking his students on exciting trips to support the classroom teaching with real life field experiences. Guru makes a great case for getting out there but he also has tips for those of you wanting to plan for such a trip. He even tells a couple harrowing tales which have created life-long memories for both he and his students.

If you have a favorite place to take students please tweet it out and tag us @mattersIB and also tag Guru @greenguru2013. We would love to see where you take your students all over the world
