About this Workshop

OVERALL PURPOSE OF WORKSHOP

To provide professional development and assistance to subject-specific educators from either a school that has decided to apply for IB authorization or those that are new or recently appointed to a school with an existing IB Diploma Programme.

 

RECOMMENDED AUDIENCE

  • 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.

 

LEARNING EXPECTATIONS

The workshop should encourage and enable participants to:

  • Articulate the assessment requirements for economics
  • Discuss the design principles of summative assessment task(s) in relation to the subject group requirements and objectives

  • Use assessment criteria to make judgments about student achievement (criterion-related, best fit)
  • Discuss and select suitable texts and resources that support teaching and learning in an IB classroom
  • Explore the nature of the extended essay and the role of the supervisor, to include reference to world studies interdisciplinary extended essay
