Fall IB: Making the PYP happen in the classroom, Category 1

Category 1 workshops are designed to provide training and assistance for schools that have decided to apply for IB authorization. They are equally relevant for educators who are new to a school with an existing IB programme and those interested in joining an IB World School.

Category 1: You will explore effective teaching, learning and assessment strategies in each of the MYP subject groups as you prepare for authorization. These workshops will encourage you to:
+ align educational beliefs and values to reflect those of the IB in order to create a challenging programme of international education
+ develop an understanding of the structures and principles of the subject group framework and guidelines
+ prepare teaching, learning and assessment strategies and design tasks that will support the implementation of the subject group framework and guidelines
+ engage in relevant, significant, challenging and student-centred environments.

Category 2: You will collaborate and reflect on effective teaching, learning and assessment strategies in each of the MYP subject groups. These workshops encourage you to:
+ continue to develop a collaborative and collegial approach to the structures and principles of the subject group aims and objectives, concepts, contexts and approaches to learning skills
+ evaluate effective teaching and learning strategies and continue to design tasks that will support the implementation of the subject groups and guidelines
+ reflect upon the relevance, innovation and rigour of the student-centred environments that you have created
+ share challenges and successes in a continued effort to align the school’s educational beliefs and values to reflect those of the IB in order to create a challenging programme of international education
+ reflect upon your own practices and capabilities.
