This presentation will be illustrating the common biases that influence our teaching and why these can make knowledge acquired through our educational system unreliable. It will address the personal biases that we have as teachers, as well as the partiality of the books that we use.

Done in the format of a TOK Presentation, this talk also aims at being a good example of what students are expected to produce in this course, and how TOK can be introduced in daily lessons from a younger age. No TOK experience necessary to join, and the presentation will be followed by a group discussion on how we can make our teaching more reliable and meaningful.

By reflecting on their biases as teachers, participants will be able to identify their strengths as well as areas to improve to make their teaching more reliable. The goal of the group discussion is to find strategies to go beyond the traditional education system in order to help students reflect on their own biases and how it affects them.

In addition, this presentation aims at introducing what TOK is about and how its principles can be used in all classes.
