International Educator Certificate for International Baccalaureate (IB) Qualification

Have you thought about teaching at an International Baccalaureate (IB) school/program and want to become certified?  The Faculty of Education at the University of Windsor has a new program that will help you to do so.
 
In cooperation with the International Baccalaureate Organization (IBO), the new International Educator Certificate for IB Qualification program will qualify you for an IB Certificate in Teaching and Learning.  This will allow you to apply for and teach in IB schools within Ontario and across the globe.
 
This new program is comprised of 4 online courses plus a practicum (for pre-service teachers) or professional learning community (PLC, for in-service teachers). Ideally, students would take 2 courses in the Fall and 2 courses plus the Practicum/PLC in the Winter.
 
It is available not only to practicing teachers and current 2nd year BEd students, but also to 1st year BEd students who can take 1 course per semester during their 2 year program.
 
 
Option 1 - Traditional Path: Fall/Winter
Fall Semester: IEC 000 and IEC 001
Winter Semester: IEC 002 and IEC 003
Spring Semester: IEC 004 OR IEC 005
 
Note: Year 1 teacher candidates are eligible to take the program upon approval, but will only take one course per semester. Courses will be as follows for Year 1 students:
Year 1 Fall: IEC 001
Year 1 Winter: IEC 000
Year 2 Fall: IEC 002
Year 2 Winter: IEC 003
Year 2 Spring: IEC 0004 (Practicum; to commence after BEd completion)
 
Option 2 - Additional Path:  Summer (June 26 to September 1, 2017)
 
All IEC courses  (IEC 000, 001, 002, 003) will also be offered in the Summer 2017.  The IEC 004 Practicum course will NOT be offered, but the IEC 005 will. 
*IEC 005 is devised as a Professional Learning Community for practicing (inservice) teachers.
 
For Year 1 Students
  • Students entering Year 1 at the Faculty of Education may take IEC 000 or IEC 001 or both.  Please note that IEC 000 or IEC 001 serves as a PRE-REQUISITE before taking IEC 002 or IEC 003. 

For Year 2 Students and Practicing Teachers (Inservice)

  • Students entering Year 2 at the Faculty of Education and current Practicing Teachers who have not yet taken IEC courses must begin by taking IEC 000 or IEC 001 or both. 
  • Year 2 students and Practicing Teachers  may take IEC 002 or IEC 003 only if they have already taken the pre-requisite course IEC 000 or IEC 001.
