Sharing Best Practice with Other IB Schools

10 November 2016

On Wednesday 9th November 2016, our Business and Economics Department hosted a Job Alike workshop for sharing best practice across key Business Management assessment areas including internal assessment, CEUGIS, and exam papers.

  • BM workshop

The workshop was led by Rebecca Symonds and Lois Johnston-Walker, both experienced BM teachers.

The event kicked off with a welcome speech by Head of Secondary, Andy Lancaster and the day was split into three discrete sessions, each looking into one aspect of assessment.  The workshop was attended by delegates from four different schools in and around Shanghai.  Real scripts (with names changed or removed) were used for marking and moderation, and the marks compared with those awarded by the IB.  The participants found the co-operative learning approach use during the day highly rewarding.

A workshop of this kind is always beneficial, as different practitioners are able to share their experiences; and judging from the response from all the participants the workshop was a resounding success.  With many thanks to Rebecca and Lois for leading the event and to the delegates from other IB schools for taking the time from their busy schedules to attend and for sharing their ideas.
