About the workshop

This workshop is recommended for teachers new to the Diploma Programme (DP) at authorised IB World Schools and teachers from interested or candidate schools preparing for authorisation.

 

This workshop is designed to prepare you to teach theory of knowledge (TOK) in a manner that supports the IB mission statement and philosophy. The workshop will focus on:

  • developing an understanding of the IB mission and philosophy through the DP programme model as a context for a holistic learning experience
  • the Theory of Knowledge guide and associated assessment requirements with practice marking activities of sample student work
  • structuring a TOK course that integrates authentic assessment and encourages students to make links across the DP that will enhance their understanding
  • the dynamic nature that exists between creativity, activity, service (CAS) and TOK when emphasizing the importance of reflecting and developing self-awareness
  • using the programme resource centre to access IB publications and network with other IB educators.

 

Within the Cat 1 workshop there will be an Introduction to Theory of Knowledge (TOK) and its place in the educational philosophy of the IB. We will also explore the Course structure and the Knowledge Framework. Including the Core theme: Knowledge and the knower and how it all links particularly strongly to the IB learner profile. The Optional themes (for example Knowledge and technology) extend from the Core themes and have strong links to International mindedness.
