Artistic information

Americas – DP Theatre Category 1 online IB workshop

Workshop goals
This workshop is recommended for teachers of Theatre from schools which have taken the decision to apply to offer the Diploma programme or new or recently appointed Theatre teachers from IB World Schools.
The overall purpose of workshops in this category is to provide professional development and assistance for schools that have decided to apply for IB authorisation. They are equally relevant for educators who are new to a school with an existing IB programme and those interested in joining an IB school.

Master class
All participants will take part in one interactive and synchronous online master class with an ISTA artist. This will take place during one of the scheduled sessions on day 2.

All participants will view one online professional theatre performance during the course. The performance will be selected by ISTA and teachers will watch this in their own time, asynchronously.

Important information

This is an online workshop.
Sessions will take place for 4 hours per day on the 3 days of the workshop.
All sessions will take place on Zoom and will be synchronous, interactive and collaborative in approach.
The workshop leader will set tasks for teachers to complete in between the live sessions on days 1 and 2.
ISTA will provide the links and passwords to all participants shortly before the workshop.
