Curriculum Study Unit (IB Education Cluster), Associate Professor
I have been involved in the curriculum development with the IB Education Cluster of EVRI, aiming to support new ways of learning of children and teachers. More specifically, I focus on the Science Education and the skills & competencies which the IB Diploma Program aims to foster. We are hopeful to capitalize on those findings to create new model curriculum, lesson plans and assessment.
