ManageBac Training Academy in Action!
Our first ManageBac Training Academy workshops of the year took place on March 24, 2022. We welcomed 50+ Teachers and Coordinators from over 18 countries to three virtual sessions – each one exploring ManageBac’s eCoursework submission process.
Hosted by our Support Team, the workshops focused on how to use ManageBac to plan and communicate deadlines, collect coursework from students, review and tag the coursework for submission, and submit the coursework to the IB.
Each workshop included hands-on activities, where participants were invited to try each stage of the process out for themselves – helping to build confidence and familiarity with the different steps involved, ready for upcoming eCoursework submissions.
We were also joined by ManageBac Curriculum Coordinator, Tom Brodie, who provided an overview of recent changes to IB submission requirements (including COVID-19 adjustments), and shared some helpful tips on how to support students in managing their workload and meeting upcoming deadlines.
All participants were given access to materials for use during and after the workshops, as well as the opportunity to ask questions and share their own ideas and experiences with the group.
