MTPYPH page 2 Booklet P3
  6. 6. What is the purpose of a workshop? <ul><li>When teachers engage in reflective practice, collegiality, and shared leadership, they come to understand themselves and their work differently. This new understanding causes a shift in their beliefs and norms. This shift in turn creates new opportunities, new visions of what can be done. The new professional development is a cultural, not a delivery, concept. </li></ul><ul><li>Linda Lambert,Educational Leadership, September 1989 </li></ul>

The curriculum is written, taught and learned. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The essential elements of curriculum – concepts, knowledge, skills, attitudes and action are interdependent components of a balanced curriculum. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Inquiry, collaboration and reflection are fundamental to the teaching/learning process . </li></ul></ul>Workshop Booklet page 5

It is a frame work, organized into transdisciplinary themes, which provides a balanced, integrated school-wide experience. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Where there is learning, there is action arising from learning. Reflection is essential for planning for action. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The IB standards and practices provide guidance for implementation of the PYP </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>There is a range of IB professional development available to support the implementation of the PYP. </li></ul></ul>Workshop Booklet page 5
