About the workshop


Aspiring and current senior leaders.

This workshop allows leaders to better understand their role in developing a learning organization as that of a designer, steward and teacher. Leaders explore how to build a shared vision, challenge prevailing mental models, build professional mastery and team learning. They apply sense-making, systems thinking and activity theory in their IB World School context.

You will explore how:

  • IB leaders are responsible for designing and sustaining learning organizations where students and staff continually expand their skills, attitudes and dispositions.
  • IB leaders challenge prevailing mental models with new ideas and innovative methods in order to bring about change.
  • IB leaders apply sense-making, systems thinking and activity theory to build a shared vision and continually develop their IB programme(s).
  • Strategic aims, that align with the IB programme standards and practices, support development with all aspects of leading an IB education.

Practical application: This workshop is centred around identifying a systemic problem or challenge participants are facing in their school context and applying the key ideas of sense-making, systems thinking and activity theory to work through the issue. Leaders will leave with practical strategies and protocols to further develop their programmes by writing a case study based around their problem or challenge.
