Urs Jungo

“My involvement with the IB Diploma programme dates back to 1994 and I have since had the opportunity to work in seven different countries on two continents. Over the last nine years I have also supported the further growth and development of the IB Diploma Programme within the Asia-Pacific region as a Consultant, Workshop Leader and Verification Team Member. Beyond that, I have a both a professional and a personal interest in exploring the benefits and the challenges of blended/online learning models.
As a father of two children who have both gone through a full IB education (PYP/MYP/DP), I am a firm believer that future generations need to develop critical thinking skills, in order to deal effectively with the challenges of the future.
Outside work, I like to escape on two wheels, be it on the motorbike or the bicycle, whilst considering that elusive future house overlooking the ocean.”
