This workshop is recommended for all experienced IB librarians, programme coordinators, members of a school leadership team and those who have recently completed a category 1 workshop.
How can the library or media centre support IB programmes?
The library or media centre provides school-wide opportunities to engage and reflect on the IB principles and practices and connect teachers and students to knowledge and information in a digital and global context.
- Investigate the key characteristics that define an IB education to develop an understanding of how the library or media centre and the librarian can support the IB standards and practices.
- Explore ways of supporting student-centred learning environments in a digital world.
- Evaluate and analyse resources that can support teaching and learning in a global context and make connections between the programmes.
- Reflect on the collaborative relationship between the library or media centre, the academic staff and school leadership to prioritize specific IB standards that have an impact on the library or media centre and the librarian.
