PYP Making the PYP happen in the classroom (Category 1)

13th October 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 15th October 2017 @ 12:45 pm

Recommended for:

this workshop is for administrators, coordinators and teachers who are working in schools where the programme is being implemented and have had an induction by their PYP coordinator, have taught approximately six months in an IB World School offering the PYP and have collaboratively planned at least one unit of inquiry, or have been working with the programme for some time but feel the need to revisit the basic philosophy and framework of the programme.

This workshop assists teachers who are currently in an IB World School offering the PYP but did not have the opportunity to receive category 1 workshop training before commencing their responsibilities. It assumes a familiarity with the planning process and the philosophy of the PYP.

Participants will develop their personal knowledge and understanding of the essential elements of the programme; deepen their understanding of international-mindedness and the learner profile; prepare themselves for planning, teaching and assessing students; and develop skills to analyse and refine the school’s programme of inquiry. The workshop environment supports educators as lifelong learners through reading and discussing current pedagogy and research. It supports teachers with their insights and questions on their journey to implement the PYP.
