About the workshop

This workshop is recommended for DP and CP teachers who are new to teaching through inquiry and concepts, and those who would like to learn more about planning lessons with concepts and inquiry central to students’ learning experience


With the introduction of approaches to teaching and learning in the programme model, this workshop provides a forum for DP teachers to develop their understanding of the transferable and universal nature of concepts and inquiry so that they take a more constructivist approach to teaching in the DP classroom.


Throughout the workshop, you will be exposed to strategies that challenge practices of focusing on isolated facts rather than the underlying conceptual connections. You will be guided through the process of backward planning through learning opportunities, actual content of courses and students’ skill development. Activities will be structured so that you model a practical inquiry appropriate for the Diploma Programme level using student-generated guiding questions. The workshop will be underpinned by current research in the education field through guided reading with opportunities to discuss and reflect on understanding. There will also be an opportunity to work on individual unit plans and gain feedback from other participants so that you leave the workshop with a practical solution for improving classroom practice.
