Workshop Information & Content

International Baccalaureate® (IB) professional development (PD) creates transformative experiences for international educators so that they can do the same for students.

The 2020 - 2021 IB workshops and services catalogue includes all four IB programmes, along with other IB products. Please visit the online catalogue for full details and descriptors of the workshops we have on offer. Read the 2020-2021 catalogue online

The International Baccalaureate® (IB) has three categories of workshop:

  • Category 1, which focus on IB philosophy and implementation
  • Category 2, which focus on delivery of the four IB programmes of education
  • Category 3, for educators to build on and enhance their professional development portfolios

Depending on your circumstances and experience, you will need workshops in a particular category.

Which workshops should I choose?

Choose Category 1 if you are new to the IB or if your situation is similar to any of the following:

  • You are new to the faculty of a longstanding IB World School and have not taught in an IB programme previously
  • You are aware of the IB philosophy and programme structure but are not experienced in teaching or administrating the IB
  • You are familiar with the IB subject guide (including assessment procedures and moderation) and would like greater confidence before teaching a course
  • You have inherited a course and would like to review the subject content before teaching it to suit your own style and expertise

Choose Category 2 workshops to develop your expertise in delivering an IB programme. You will have an opportunity to:

  • make connections between programme frameworks and classroom practice
  • enhance your understanding of assessment in IB programmes
  • discuss and analyse standards and practices

Choose Category 3 workshops to go more deeply into areas you enjoy and to strengthen your understanding and mastery of a particular subject.

Note: teachers and other school leaders who do not teach in an IB school but wish to sample IB learning may choose to participate in Category 3 workshops.
