About the workshop

This workshop is recommended for experienced IB practitioners in the Middle Years Programme (MYP).

 

This workshop will provide concrete strategies to assist teachers in creating a learning culture that connects cognitive and constructivist learning theories to MYP real-world assessment practices.

Effective teaching is a process, not a technique, and is rooted in authentic assessment practices. There is a deep exploration of how formative and summative assessments work together to create a well-defined approach to making learning meaningful and authentic.

This workshop aims to:

  • develop your understanding of how assessment informs the teaching and learning of students
  • provide you with a variety of strategies and pedagogies that support the practical application of MYP assessment philosophy
  • allow you to reflect on how the design of assessment impacts the culture of teaching and learning in your schools, beginning with writing a school assessment policy.
