Recommended for:

DP subject teachers who have prepared students for at least one DP exam session in that specific subject. Educators should enroll in a category 2 workshop in their particular subject area.


These workshops are designed for participants who are keen to improve the teaching and learning experience in the DP classroom. The workshop will focus on:

  • assessing the links between IB Programme standards and practices (January 2014) to enhance the teaching and learning experience 
  • developing strategies to improve student access to the DP; for example, differentiating the curriculum and offering multilingual classrooms
  • reviewing aspects of assessment to ensure that teaching and learning activities promote student achievement and address subject-specific assessment criteria, both internal and external
  • integrating the IB philosophy, TOK and CAS to promote student understanding
  • understanding how collaborative planning increases connections between subjects that can reinforce knowledge, understanding and skills
  • the role of the extended essay supervisor and subjectspecific assessment criteria
  • the implementation of DP policies and procedures
  • broad changes to the DP (newly published guides following a curriculum review will be the focus of specially designed category 3 workshops called “subject specific seminars”).
