Language A: Literature (generic) – DP – Category 1

13th November 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 15th November 2020 @ 12:45 pm

Recommended for:

Diploma Programme (DP) subject-group teachers new to the DP at established IB World Schools and teachers from interested or candidate schools preparing for authorization. Educators should enroll in a category 1 workshop in their particular subject area.

Note: Language workshops designated as “generic” provide IB professional development for German, Mandarin, Italian, Arabic and other languages that are not presented in language-specific workshops. Most of the time, the workshops are presented in English.

These workshops are designed to prepare participants to teach a specific DP subject in a manner that supports the IB mission statement and philosophy. The workshop will focus on:

  • developing an understanding of the IB mission and philosophy through the programme model as a context for a holistic learning experience
  • the subject-specific guide and associated internal and external assessment requirements with practice marking activities of sample student work
  • structuring a course that integrates authentic assessment and encourages students to make links across the DP that will enhance their understanding
  • using the programme resource centre to access IB publications and network with other IB educators.

Category 1

Choose Category 1 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 administrating 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 to review the subject content before teaching it to suit your own style and expertise.
