Professional Development for Teachers: International Baccalaureate 2012-2013

In 2012, I worked with the International Baccalaureate (IB) to develop and write a series of workshops for professional development as part of the series entitled “Teaching and Learning with an International Perspective”. They included:

  • Promoting Active Student Learning
  • Teaching and Learning with Meaningful Content
  • Planning, Teaching and Assessing for Student Learning
  • Teaching for Intercultural Understanding and Global Engagement

These are facilitated workshops that are delivered on the IB Moodle platform. My role was to re-design and write the workshops ready for development in Lectora and for upload to the Moodle platform.

Working in collaboration with Early Years specialists, I converted two face to face courses into online workshops:

  • Pedagogical Leadership in the Early Years PYP (Primary Years Programme)
  • Assessment in the Early Years PYP

In 2013, I continue to work with the International Baccalaureate, developing professional development materials  in close consultation with their international teachers. Further workshop titles are:

  • Holistic Teaching and Learning
  • Developing Independent and Collaborative Learners
