IB is about more than motivating students to succeed. It's about preparing them for responsible global citizenship.
Bethel’s IB Certificate in Teaching and Learning will help you mobilize students to become independent learners, critical thinkers, and global citizens in IB schools. Coursework develops practical understanding of curriculum, pedagogy, and assessment issues related to IB program implementation and a basic overview of all three IB programs. Designed for licensed teachers, the program encourages reflective practice and research that helps you engage your students.
With our Certificate in International Baccalaureate Teaching and Learning, you'll deepen your knowledge of the curriculum, pedagogy, assessment, and implementation of IB programs at the elementary, middle, and high school levels.

Current job: Head Football Coach, Gustavus Adolphus College (MN)
While interviewing with a Bethel alum for a position at UnitedHealth Group, the interviewer asked me to consider joining the International Audit department instead of the position for which I had applied. At the time, I had next to no idea what working in International Audit entailed! That same Bethel alum also connected me to the Healthcare Reform opportunity three years later. So, it’s safe to say that my career path was undeniably influenced by Bethel and this wonderful alum who decided to take a chance on me – not just once, but twice.Chin-Chin Lin '09
