IBDP Economics: Making sense of the new syllabus

The new syllabus is finally here. Are you ready to teach it?

Don’t make the mistake of thinking it is the old syllabus with a few tweaks. It is much more than that. But does it live up to its promise of being a more compact syllabus that allows room for additional inquiry based learning and the development of the nine new concepts? And theory of the firm packaged as market failure – how do I best approach that?

This webinar aims to provide a broad overview of all of the changes, before focussing on a few specific elements in more detail. By the end of it, we will have:

– Identified all of the key changes made in the content.
– Discussed concept based teaching and learning.
– Discussed approaches to the Theory of the Firm content.
– Considered some key changes to the assessment model.
