Research at ISP
In order to measure the success of online learning systems and structures during COVID-19 confinement, the ISP Centre for Research and Professional Development will be coordinating a number of research projects both at the International School of Paris and abroad. The evolution of student wellbeing, the impact of independent learning strategies on wellbeing and engagement with online learning will all be studied. To join the research, please contact us at email@example.com. We hope to transform isolation into collaboration, sharing insight that will help us think differently about learning and teaching in a new era.
All members of the learning community will understand that they are the link between what we know and what we have not yet discovered.
ISP Research Centre Steering Committee, 2019
In all IB programmes, teaching is based on inquiry. A strong emphasis is placed on students finding their own information and constructing their own understandings.
The International Baccalaureate, 2017
The natural counterpoint to an inquiry-based curriculum is a research-led organisation.
Simon Murray, 2017
Researchers (students, staff and all other members of the ISP community) are at the centre of the ISP research network.
Mentors assist researchers by providing necessary support, including methodological advice or assistance in presenting a research project.
The Steering Committee members set the strategic direction and goals for the Centre in addition to providing guidance in important domains, such as ethics.
Curators recruit and train mentors and celebrate community achievements.
