Category 2 workshops are designed to provide a forum for experienced IB educators, focusing on programme delivery. Emphasis is placed on assessment, teaching and learning methodologies, and exploring best practices in the classroom.
The workshop is designed to review and update counselors on the standards and practices of the Diploma Programme (DP) to support momentum and maximize student attainment. A goal of the workshop is to define and discuss the role of the IB counselor and learn strategies to support the effectiveness of the counselor working with IB students. Counselors learn to keep abreast of changes in the DP and articulate the outcomes to properly advise students towards diploma attainment and post-secondary options. You will explore current trends in post-secondary options and access, as well as learn strategies to effectively communicate with universities.
