#interdisciplinaryCDLT


Why come?

Interdisciplinary teaching and learning can be seen as a challenge for many teachers and schools. This workshop is designed to develop participants’ understanding of the principles and practices that underpin MYP interdisciplinary teaching and learning. The workshop will explore the role of conceptual thinking in developing interdisciplinary units of inquiry. Participants will develop an interdisciplinary unit planner and a performance of understanding to assess student work. The MYP interdisciplinary objectives and criteria will be explored as well as ways to practically organize interdisciplinary teaching and learning in schools.

WHO IS IT FOR

Teams of at least two teachers from different subject groups should attend so they can work together on a unit plan to use at their home school. Individual teachers are also welcome.
