DP WORKSHOPS

Category 2 workshops invite more experienced Diploma Programme (DP) school leaders and subject-group teachers to collaborate and reflect on strategies to enhance the ongoing implementation of the programme.  Category 2 DP workshops are for administrators, coordinators, and teachers who have previously attended a category 1 workshop or who have been working with the programme in their role for at least one school year.  In addition, Category 2 DP subject workshops are for DP subject teachers who have prepared students for at least one exam session in that specific subject.  Lastly, it is important to note that Category 2 workshops cannot meet the PD requirement for a school’s authorization.

These workshops are designed for participants who are keen to improve the teaching and learning experience in the DP classroom.

The workshop will focus on:

  • Assessing the links between IB programme standards and practices (January 2014) to enhance the teaching and learning experience
  • Developing strategies to improve student access to the DP; for example, differentiating the curriculum and offering multilingual classrooms
  • Reviewing aspects of assessment to ensure that teaching and learning activities promote student achievement and address subject-specific assessment criteria, both internal and external
  • Integrating the IB philosophy, theory of knowledge (TOK) and Creativity, activity, service (CAS) to promote student understanding
  • Understanding how collaborative planning increases connections between subjects that can reinforce knowledge, understanding and skills
  • The role of the extended essay supervisor and subject- specific assessment criteria
  • The implementation of DP policies and procedures
  • Broad changes to the DP (newly published guides following a curriculum review will be the focus of specially designed category 3 workshops called “subject-specific seminars”).

During the workshop, you will have an opportunity to discuss the nature of the TOK. Through workshop activities, you will model the TOK approach by reflecting on yourself—the teacher—as “knowers” and discuss the “ways of knowing” in TOK and their relevance with other IB subjects. The workshop will explore the link between TOK and inquiry so that you can incorporate a practical understanding of TOK in quality curriculum planning and classroom teaching.

This workshop is an active, hands-on workshop for DP coordinators and administrators who want to understand the DP evaluation process. The IB programme standards and practices (January 2014), the Guide to programme evaluation (January 2016), and Self-study questionnaire: Diploma Programme (January 2016) are used as the backbone to analyse this topic. You will leave with a self-devised strategic plan for your own school evaluation process that will enable you to move forward when you return to school.
