The IB Approach to Teaching Science with Bhavya Prabu
Show Notes

In this episode we talk to Bhavya Prabu about the IB approach to teaching and learning science from MYP to DP.  Bhavya has experience teaching in both the Diploma Programme and the Middle Years Programme so she has an excellent perspective for this discussion.

We talk about the structure and requirements of a couple of DP science courses, specifically Biology and ESS. But we also get into the philosophy of the IB approach and how the skill building seen in the MYP leads to success later on in the DP.

Bhavya has generously shared a number of teacher resources and examples which you can find in our podcast notes,below.
