Diploma Programme Integration

Our integration padlets and TOK mini-lessons enable any DP teacher to bring TOK into their classroom, link their subject to the real-world, and help their students become authentic critical thinkers.

We update the two resources every month, adding new media sources and mini-lessons, so make sure you check back regularly to ensure you’re using the latest version.

Access the DP integration resources padlets

Hit the buttons below to take you to our DP integration resources. Combine these resources with our lessons, real-world resources, and TOK-world resources to offer the full TOK experience.

At the heart of what we do is the encouragement of students to become authentic critical thinkers (ACT). This means providing learners with the tools to identify and challenge – rather than confirm – their biases and assumptions about the world.

The ACT/TOK teaching and learning pathway

Placing ACT at the heart of what we do enables us to create a learning pathway represented by the diagram below. We begin with resources for primary learners, move onto the middle years resources, and culminate in our resources for the TOK course (or, if your students are following a different educational programme our senior ACT resources).

Our resources are incredibly flexible, and can be plugged into any educational programme. You can draw on our middle and primary ACT resources to help prepare students for the TOK course within timetabled critical thinking classes, PSE lessons, or in optional extension periods outside the usual day – it’s entirely up to you.

We’ve made the integration padlet for anthropology accessible to anyone to give you an idea of how effective this resource is. To access the other 24 padlets for all the other DP subjects, become a faculty member of the site here.

Our series of webinars offer tips and strategies on how to integrate TOK with the different Diploma Programme groups. You can access the Group 1 webinar by clicking on the video, and access the videos for the other Groups via this YouTube playlist.

Each video provides you with a link to the event presentation, and our responses to FAQs asked by attendees. Check out our other recorded webinars, and news about upcoming TOK events, via this page.

Make your TOK course genuinely life-changing

Our workshops demonstrate to all teachers – whatever their level, programme, or specialisation – how they can develop authentic critical thinking.

They’re engaging, jargon-free, and authoritative, and give teachers practical takeaways they can apply in the classroom, and help their students become nuanced, discerning knowers. Find out more here, and read our workshop brochure here.
