Frequently Asked Questions

Which workshops should I choose?

NB: ­These category definitions are from official IB publications. ­Please note that they do NOT say that Category 1 workshops are for "applicant" schools. ­"Applicant schools" is a term not used anywhere in these definitions.

Choose Category 1 workshops if you are new to the IB or if your situation is similar to any of the following:
• You are new to the faculty of a longstanding IB World School and have not taught in an IB programme previously.
• You are aware of the IB philosophy and programme structure but are not experienced in teaching or administering the IB.
• You are familiar with the IB subject guide (including assessment procedures, moderation) and would like greater confidence before teaching a course.
• You have inherited a course and would like a review before teaching it to suit your own style and expertise.
­
Choose Category 2 workshops to develop your expertise in delivering an IB programme. You will have an opportunity to:
• make connections between programme frameworks and classroom practice
• enhance your understanding of assessment in IB programmes
• discuss and analyze standards and practices
­
Choose Category 3 workshops to go more deeply into areas you enjoy and to deepen your understanding and mastery of a particular area or subject.
