DP Creativity, Activity, Service (Category 1)

16th February 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 18th February 2018 @ 1:00 pm


Recommended for:

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.
