About the session

The Diploma Programme’s TOK course is an opportunity for students to reflect on the question: how do you know what you claim to know? Focused on the interpretative nature of knowledge, planning this course is exciting, and often challenging, for educators.

At this masterclass, you can unpack the nuances of TOK with Urs Jungo, and discover how to build connections between this course and other DP subjects. Explore how you can support your students as they develop an awareness of the areas of knowledge, and plan for their TOK assessments – the essay and the exhibition.
