RECOMMENDED FOR: Coordinators, members of the pedagogical leadership team, librarians, specialists, deans of students, counsellors, year level leaders/heads of department, section leaders, heads, inclusion specialists and career or guidance specialists. Heads of school may benefit from attending this workshop with or without their pedagogical leadership team.
This workshop will support learning leaders to enhance the identity of being an IB World School through a reflection on the purpose, culture and environment of their learning organization and their agency for growing leadership capacity within the school. Building on this understanding, leaders will consider the ways in which they will place learning at the center of their IB programme, through the thoughtful development of purpose, culture and environment, in alignment with the IB’s programme standards and practices.
Working with each other and the workshop leaders, participants will:
- develop their leadership capabilities as a pedagogical leader within a learning organization
- become familiar with the IB’s leadership capabilities as lenses or tools to develop their personal mastery in an IB global context
- prepare to develop collaborative or shared leadership capacity within their school
- plan the journey through school self-study toward evaluation and beyond. During the workshop, leaders will reflect and build on their school’s IB development plan to meet the IB’s requirements for evaluation and a vision for ongoing implementation.
