Summer Workshops

Summer workshops

We invite you to be inspired by the beauty of New Mexico; by experienced, knowledgeable workshop leaders; and by talented colleagues. UWC-USA has hosted International Baccalaureate workshops for more than 25 years, successfully meeting the needs of teachers who are new to IB as well as seasoned educators. We were one of the very first IB schools in the United States and take very seriously our role as pioneers as the IB reaches its 50th birthday.

With recent changes to the IB curriculum, it’s more important than ever to stay abreast of how each program area is changing to meet the needs of a complicated educational landscape and the learning needs of our students.

While past participants consistently point to the outstanding workshop leaders we attract each year, they also benefit from the camaraderie and informal networking among other educators. Enjoy the celebrated hospitality of the American Southwest, recharge your batteries, dive into content and curriculum in your subject area, and make friends from around the world.

March workshops are held in Albuquerque and our summer sessions are held in Santa Fe at the St. John’s College campus.

Santa Fe is a part of the country rich in history and culture. Established in 1610 by the Spanish, Santa Fe is the oldest capital in the US. Visit this page for a list of the top 15 tourist attractions in the city.

Also of interest is the recently renovated Meow Wolf Arts and Entertainment Group. Visit here for more information on their Santa Fe location.

Most information and photos can be found on the St. John’s College website

“The virtue and the strength of UWC is that it provides small, but powerful cells of innovation, catalysts for change, breaking barriers of habit and opening broader vistas of experience for both pupils and educationalists.”
