Physics: A focus on internal assessment – DP – Category 3 – 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

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:

Experienced Diploma Programme (DP) physics teachers and IB physics teachers who have recently completed a category 1 physics workshop.

Practical work is an important feature of the DP physics course. This workshop supports you in the development of a balanced and practical scheme of work that provides opportunities to assess students using the sciences group internal assessment criteria. You will examine various student samples to develop a clear understanding of the application of the internal assessment criteria and the moderation process. The ways in which teachers can scaffold teaching and learning to prepare students for internal assessment will also be explored. This workshop is suitable if you wish to improve your practical schemes of work as well as if you are new to teaching physics in the DP.


Category 3

Choose category 3 workshops to go more deeply into areas you enjoy and to deepen your understanding and mastery of a particular area or subject. Note: Teachers and other school leaders who do not teach in an IB World School but wish to sample IB learning may choose to participate in many of our workshops. Please refer to the “Recommended for” information in each workshop description.
