TOK is considered by many to be the flagship course of the IB. It is a course about critical thinking and inquiring into the process of knowing, rather than about learning a specific body of knowledge. This session examines the new TOK course and emphasises the distinction between personal and shared knowledge, the new ways of knowing and areas of knowledge and the knowledge framework for comparing and contrasting areas of knowledge. Advice on preparing students for TOK assessment will also be provided.
