In this interactive session, three staff members from the International Baccalaureate (IB) will share how the IB show a commitment to social justice for all students and specifically in this session for language and learning and assessment. Language Learning is at the core of the IB mission and this session will help participants to understand how the IB plans for language learning from the implementation of its programmes to their delivery: making spaces for people and their multilingual diversity and for social justice. Universal design is incorporated into the development of summative IB assessments and the presenter will discuss this process and share examples with the audience. The presentation will be underpinned by two questions ‘What are the opportunities and challenges that arise for the IB in terms of increasing access and participation for underserved learners?’ and ‘What is and could be the role of UDL in removing barriers to learning for IB students?’ Participants will be challenged to consider who the underserved learners may be in the context of an IB education and will be invited to share their expertise in helping to shape how UDL could be used in the future.
