Teachers new to the Diploma Programme (DP) at authorized IB World Schools and teachers from interested or candidate schools preparing for authorization.
This workshop is designed to prepare you to teach theory of knowledge (TOK) 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 DP programme model as a context for a holistic learning experience
- the Theory of knowledge guide (first teaching September 2013, first examinations 2015), and associated assessment requirements with practice marking activities of sample student work
- structuring a TOK course that integrates authentic assessment and encourages students to make links across the DP that will enhance their understanding
- the dynamic nature that exists between creativity, activity, service (CAS) and TOK when emphasizing the importance of reflecting and developing self-awareness
- IB Programme standards and practices (January 2014)
- using the programme resource centre to access IB publications and network with other IB educators.
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.
