About the workshop

RECOMMENDED FOR: Programme/subject group coordinators, librarians, counsellors, team leaders at any level of leadership.

In this workshop leaders explore how to lead and manage a multitude of teams and team structures in their context.

Leaders inquire into how to maximize team learning that results in positive outcomes throughout the IB World School.

You will explore how:

  • Professional inquiry and team learning are at the very core of the IB approach to programme development.
  • Effective team leaders use a variety of leadership and management strategies to focus their teams on learning.
  • IB leaders sustain and grow teams by focusing on the needs of the learning community.
  • Dialogic teams engage in discussion about pedagogy within their own school and their extended IB network.

Practical application: Participants will choose an inquiry question, from the actual workshop inquiries, around which they would like to have further conversations with their team back at school. They will design the conversation using protocols and strategies learned in the workshop.
