Topic: Leading an IB learning organization
Facilitated by: Richard Curtis

IB leaders are responsible for designing and sustaining learning environments where students and staff are encouraged to continually expand their skills, attitudes and dispositions. Through this workshop, you will develop a greater understanding of your role in the learning organization, as a designer, mentor and teacher.

You will explore how to:

  • challenge prevailing mental models with new ideas and innovative methods in order to bring about change
  • apply sense-making*, systems thinking and activity theory to build a shared vision and continually develop your IB programme(s)
  • develop strategic aims that align with the IB Programme standards and practices.

*Each school needs to make sense of what it means to be an IB World School within its own specific context. There is no-size-fits-all approach to being an IB World School—instead, it is about a symbiotic relationship between the IB and its schools, focused on organizational growth.

Practical application: This workshop is centred around identifying a systemic problem or challenge participants are facing in their school context and applying the key ideas of sense-making, systems thinking and activity theory to work through the issue. Leaders will leave with practical strategies and protocols to further develop their programmes by writing a case study based on their problem or challenge.

Suitable for: Senior leaders, including directors, US district leaders, principals/Head of Schools and individuals moving into those roles.
