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”).
