DP coordinators of creativity, activity, service (CAS).
This workshop is designed to help CAS coordinators develop a quality CAS programme that supports the IB mission statement and philosophy. The workshop will focus on:
- the IB mission and philosophy and the programme model as a context for a holistic learning experience
- the experiential learning framework, how this relates to CAS and how CAS can support teaching and learning across the DP hexagon
- the dynamic nature that exists between CAS and theory of knowledge ( TOK) when emphasizing the importance of reflection and developing self-awareness
- types of conditions and activities that are suitable when developing a meaningful CAS experience that promotes the idea of “thinking globally, acting locally”
- the meaning of CAS for the wider school community
- the roles that the CAS coordinator and supervisor play, and how the roles differ
- the meaning of CAS for students’ personal successes and challenges
- the use of the OCC to access IB publications and network with other IB educators.
