This workshop is designed to help creativity, activity, service (CAS) coordinators develop a quality CAS programme that supports the IB mission statement and philosophy.
The workshop will focus on:
+ the IB mission and philosophy and the programme model as a context for a holistic learning experience
+ the experiential learning framework, how this relates to CAS and how CAS can support teaching and learning across the DP
+ the dynamic nature that exists between CAS and theory of knowledge (TOK) when emphasizing the importance of reflection and developing self-awareness
+ types of conditions and activities that are suitable when developing a meaningful CAS experience that promotes the idea of “thinking globally, acting locally”
+ the meaning of CAS for the wider school community
+ the roles that the CAS coordinator and supervisor play, and how the roles differ
+ the meaning of CAS for students’ personal successes and challenges
+ the use of the programme resource centre (formerly the online curriculum centre, or OCC) to access IB publications and network with other IB educators.
