About the IB training


Training 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.

The overall purpose of workshops in this category is to provide a forum for experienced IB educators to focus on assessment and programme delivery.

Specialist workshop
All participants will take part in one virtual specialist workshop.

At ISTA, we offer specialist workshops as part of all our IB DP Theatre Training 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.

Theatre
All participants will view one professional theatre performance as part of the workshop.
