Heads of schools/IB coordinators: Implementing the MYP curriculum – MYP – Category 1 – POSTPONED

April 24 @ 1:00 pm - April 26 @ 12:45 pm

Following the recent advice from the UK Government in response to COVID-19 we have taken the decision to postpone this workshop until:

Friday 4th – Sunday 6th September 2020 at Warwick University Conference Centre, Coventry

Please note that by September, this combined workshop will no longer be in use and IB will have shifted to separate workshops called Head of School (for heads) and Leading the learning (for coordinators) as such we will only be running MYP Leading the Learning and not MYP Head of Schools. 

If you have already registered on this workshop your place will be automatically transferred to the new date. If you have not yet registered and would like to attend on the new dates please follow the ‘apply’ link’ below. 

Recommended for:

Middle Years Programme (MYP) administrators, heads of school and IB coordinators.

Heads of school and MYP coordinators from candidate schools and schools interested in implementing the MYP should enroll in this category 1 workshop. You will explore the philosophical, pedagogical and administrative implications of the IB programme to help as you prepare for the verification visit. This workshop encourages you to:

  • develop a leadership approach around collaboration and collegiality
  • transform teaching, learning and assessment practices through a concept-based curriculum that ignites inquiry, action and reflection in global contexts
  • motivate your school community to innovate and take risks
  • align the school’s educational beliefs and values to reflect those of the IB in order to implement a challenging programme of international education.

 

Category 1

Choose category 1 workshops if you are new to the IB or if your situation is similar to any of the following:

  • You are new to the faculty of a longstanding IB World School and have not taught in an IB programme previously.
  • You are aware of the IB philosophy and programme structure but are not experienced in teaching or administering the IB.
  • You are familiar with the IB subject guide (including assessment procedures, moderation) and would like greater confidence before teaching a course.
  • You have inherited a course and would like a review before teaching it to suit your own style and expertise.

 

Dates: Friday 24th – Sunday 26th April 2020
Venue: University of Warwick Conference Centre.
Registration: Anytime between 13:00 and 14:00 on Friday 24th.
