Category 1: This workshop is designed to prepare participants to teach a specific DP subject 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 programme model as a context for a holistic learning experience
+ the subject-specific guide and associated internal and external assessment requirements with practice marking activities of sample student work
+ structuring a course that integrates authentic assessment and encourages students to make links across the DP that will enhance their understanding
+ using the programme resource centre (formerly the online curriculum centre, or OCC) to access IB publications and network with other IB educators.

Category 2: This workshop is 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”).
