The monthly TOK newsletter
Our unique monthly newsletter is our most powerful resource for ensuring that the TOK course you deliver is always relevant, engaging, and covers issues that matter right now.
Every edition of the newsletter enables your entire DP faculty to link their subject to both TOK and the real world, and encourage students to develop their real-world critical thinking. Here’s a link to a recent edition.

The newsletter is our key resource to help our members design and deliver an exciting, up-to-date, integrated TOK course. Each edition focuses on 20 different issues and events, and provides you with one or more media sources – such as an article, video, or podcast – to explore them via a classroom-ready TOK ‘mini-lesson’.
They are designed as much for non-TOK teachers as they are for TOK teachers, meaning that your entire DP faculty can encourage students to think beyond the headlines, challenge assumptions, and place learning within the real-world. The best way to see how this works is by reading a newsletter for yourself: click on the image below to access the May 2023 stories, presented via their mini-lesson presentation.
