2014 Meeting - Swiss IB Geography Network

0900 - 0930 - Welcome coffee

0930 - 1030 - Session One - IBDP Geography Curriculum Review - new syllabus - Kathleen Noreisch [International School of Berne]

A summary of the curriculum review process so far and a look at some of the changes to expect in 2016. Participants will have a chance to provide feedback on the proposed changes, which will be taken to the curriculum review committee as they continue developing the new course.

1030 - 1100 - Break

1100 - 1145 - Session Two - Front-loading - Richard Allaway [International School of Geneva - Campus des Nations

It's a bit like 'flipping the classroom' but importantly doesn't involve any videos on me!

1145 - 1230 - Session Three - Double value case studies - Sean Coffey [International School Basel]

Case studies that can be used for different parts of the syllabus.  The aim is to share ideas to cut down on the load of case study info students need to learn.

1230 - 1330 - Lunch at BonApp

1330 - 1430 - Session Four - TOK knowledge frameworks and Geography Extended Essays - John Cannings

The framework can enable the student to clarify their research question and help plan their data collection and analysis.

1430 - 1530 - Session Five - Techy things I am enjoying at the minute - Richard Allaway [International School of Geneva - Campus des Nations]

A run down of the techy tools and approaches I am enjoying using in my DP classroom.
