Symposium - Toronto French School
September 25, 2017 - Registration Link:
Synopsis: The symposium is open to all IBDP schools and is geared towards IBDP Coordinators and Administrators but teachers are also welcome. A single school can send up to two participants. The afternoon session will be of most interest to schools that undergo Ontario Ministry inspection but will be open to anyone who is interested. Participants may choose to leave after the morning session if they wish. The purpose of this roundtable/symposium is to discuss the following items:
Morning Session (8:30 to 12:00)
1.Student Engagement - how are you keeping your IBDP students engaged right through the end of the school and into exams?
2.70/30 split - what schools are doing it, how is it managed in terms of university communication and has it resulted in increased engagement?
3.End of year activities - how and when do you recognize your students who have wrapped up courses (before the May exams?) If you do it before May exams, are we sending the wrong message that the students are 'done' and they don't take exams seriously?
Lunch Break (12:00 to 1:00)
Afternoon Session (1:00 to 2:00)
1.Managing Ministry Inspections - what have you been told by previous inspectors? What strategies have you developed that could be shared with others? What have you learned from previous inspections?
