Language ab initio (Generic)- DP – Category 1: Virtual

November 12 @ 9:00 am - November 14 @ 4:00 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 enrol in a category 1 workshop in their particular subject area.

Note: Language workshops designated as “generic” provide IB professional development for teachers of languages that are not presented in language-specific workshops, but they are open to teachers of any language. 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 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.
