Language ab initio (Generic) – DP – Category 2

8th February 2019 @ 8:00 am - 10th February 2019 @ 5:00 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.

 

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 (formerly the online curriculum centre, or OCC) to access IB publications and network with other IB educators.

 

Note: Language workshops designated as “generic” provide IB professional development for all languages, including those that are not presented in language-specific workshops. The workshop will be presented in English. The workshops address common content and materials. The workshop leader will try their best to address specific language needs provided the IB has made samples available to them.

Category 2

Choose category 2 workshops to develop your expertise in delivering an IB programme. You will have an opportunity to:
