About the IB workshop


Workshop goals

Category 1
The Category 1 DP Theatre workshop is designed to prepare participants to teach DP theatre in a manner that supports the IB mission statement and philosophy.

This workshop is recommended for teachers of IB DP Theatre from schools that are applying to offer the Diploma programme, or new/ recently appointed Theatre teachers from IB World Schools. They also provide professional development and assistance for educators in schools that have decided to or are considering, applying for IB authorisation. Educators who are new to a school with an existing IB programme or are interested in joining an IB school are also eligible. No previous knowledge is required.

Target audience
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.

Category 2
This workshop is designed to provide a forum for experienced DP theatre teachers to focus on ways to develop programme delivery, assessment, teaching and learning.

This workshop is for experienced Theatre teachers from IB World Schools. Teachers must have either attended a previous Category 1 workshop in Theatre OR have been teaching DP Theatre for a number of years. The overall purpose of workshops in this category is to provide a forum for experienced IB educators to focus on assessment and programme delivery.

Target audience
All teachers of the NEW DP Theatre course beginning in 2022 for cohorts graduating in May/November 2024.
Diploma Programme (DP) Theatre teachers who have prepared students for at least one DP exam session in Theatre.

Category 3
ISTA’s Category 3 workshop is designed as a sophisticated platform for seasoned educators looking to expand their professional development repertoire. It offers participants an opportunity to delve deeply into specialised topics, honing their areas of interest and refining their expertise.

This advanced workshop encourages in-depth exploration and critical analysis, allowing educators to immerse themselves in the nuances of their chosen subjects. It’s an environment conducive to the exchange of high-level ideas and practices, aimed at further elevating teaching and learning experiences.

Specialist workshop
All participants will take part in one face to face specialist workshop.

At ISTA, we offer specialist workshops as part of all our IB DP Theatre Workshops. Our specialist workshop sessions aim to give participants a thorough insight into a specific aspect of theatre, enhancing their understanding and skills in a more concentrated manner. They aim to equip our IB DP Theatre teacher participants with new skills and knowledge that broaden their existing toolkit. By concentrating on a specific aspect of theatre practice, we introduce participants to the core of the field, igniting inspiration for further exploration and application in their teaching or creative work. Our sessions are designed to stimulate creative thinking and offer new approaches to theatre that participants can bring back to their classrooms or practice.
