Recommended for: DP coordinators who are:

This workshop is designed to help DP coordinators implement the programme in a manner that supports the IB mission statement and philosophy. It is facilitated by experienced IB DP coordinators. The workshop will focus on:

  • the role and responsibilities of the DP coordinator and possible strategies for implementing the DP in the context of the school in which participants work
  • IB Programme standards and practices (January 2014) and the processes involved in application for both candidacy and authorization
  • key IB publications that inform the work of the IB DP coordinator online systems, such as International Baccalaureate Information System (IBIS) and the online curriculum centre (OCC), that are vital to the role of the DP coordinator.

By the conclusion of the workshop, participants will not only have a strong understanding of the underlying principles of the DP, but will also have begun to draft various school-specific documents to help with the ongoing implementation and growth of the DP.
