Starting from 2005, Victoria (China) Education Group has been dedicated to providing regular IB workshops to all teachers. On 12th -13th October 2019, English teachers from Shanghai/Suzhou/Hangzhou campuses of Victoria (China) Education Group attended a two-day IB workshop. The schedule was packed full with inquiry activities, learning and fun. While teachers learned the core concepts of IB curriculum, they also worked to better understand the mission of Victoria, and to combine the theoretical aspects and practical methods of teaching. Upholding the values and vision to be professional and responsible teachers, they were focusing on developing approaches to guide children’s positive attitudes in their learning, their environment, and the people around them.
第一天 Day One
一天的培训以破冰的形式为开端，教师们热情洋溢地互相介绍自己，随后讲师Inga Bela对于IB的基本理念给予充分的讲解，例如IB六大超学科学习单元, 十大培养目标、7个国际化视野的定义、以及如何在关爱、信任、尊重的环境下营造创新的教育环境。老师们根据不同年龄阶段的特色制作精美的宣传海报，在丰富的互动游戏和互相提问的环节后圆满的结束了当天的陪训。
The first day of training started with an ice-breaker activity, teachers from different campuses introduced themselves each other passionately, and followed with the presentation from the trainer, Inga Bela.The presentation ensured teachers fully understood the general information of IB curriculum, such as, IB transdiciplinary themes, learner profile, key concepts, approaches to learning, the definition of becoming international minded, and how to develop innovative learning and teaching environments in a caring, reliable, respectful and inclusive atmosphere. Teachers were very engaged in designing unique posters according to different age ranges, and the workshop day ended with creative interactive games and reflection of their own learning.
第二天 Day Two
On the second day, teachers reviewed what they have learned. Working in teams, teachers presented their understanding of “AGENCY“ within the IB curriculum. Through lots of collaborative activities, they understood the importance of incorporating choice and voice while designing learning experiences. To conclude the two days of workshops, groups showed ownership of their learning through performances in styles of their own choice, resulting in innovative and exciting presentations of drama, poetry, dancing, singing and even military training!
Throughout the two-day training, the trainees have some words to say:
It was incredibly insightful learning the surface of IB/PYP as a foundation to learning. I’m very much looking forward to learning about this way of learning and hope for more trainings in the future.

It was an incredibly informative experience, especially learning about the ways to incorporate the PYP/IB into my classroom and apply all the necessary strategies. I am excited to carry on being a life long learner and hope to better my abilities and gain more knowledge in the near future.
