Interdisciplinary teaching and learning in the MYP – MYP – Category 2: Virtual

November 12 @ 9:00 am - November 14 @ 4:00 pm

Recommended for:

Teams of at least two teachers from different subject groups should attend so they can work together on a unit plan to use at their home school. Individual teachers are also welcome.

This workshop is based on Fostering interdisciplinary teaching and learning in the MYP (August 2014, updated September 2017). The workshop will provide background knowledge of the Middle Years Programme (MYP), including the philosophy and principles of interdisciplinary unit planning. You will gain a deeper understanding of the theory of interdisciplinarity and adopt a hands-on approach to developing an interdisciplinary unit of work within a group. This interactive workshop is designed to provide guidance on how to prepare a step-by-step interdisciplinary unit, from designing a multifaceted question to assessing the work. You will also explore the interdisciplinary aims, objectives and criteria and explore ways to practically organize interdisciplinary teaching and learning in your schools.
