Session 2: Rethinking DP for Curriculum Planning
Do you have DP teachers that still think of ManageBac as “that CAS website”? With the introduction of example unit planners for DP when the Approaches to Learning site was launched in January 2015, more schools are rethinking how unit planning can be used to capture and map ATL experiences, incorporate CAS within subject teaching and learning, and embed TOK links deeper into lesson plans. With recent DP curriculum reviews emphasising conceptual skill development, effective unit planning assists with building these skills and providing evidence for IB standards and practices. This session will outline recent changes to ManageBac that align with IB recommendations and aim to help participants rethink how DP unit planning is taking place at their school.

Session 3: DP Assessment
Assessment in the DP aims to develop skills and understanding across the range of subject groups. Effective assessment in any teaching programme blends both the summative tasks needed for reporting progress at certain stages as well as formative assessment to inform and improve teaching and learning for all students.

This session will outline how each of these can be planned and implemented using ManageBac as well as demonstrating how to configure grade scales and category weightings specific to your school. We will also show how to provide feedback directly to students within ManageBac using comments and integration with Crocodoc as well as how to use Turnitin directly with assignment submission.
