Off to Another Course

I have only been in my new school for less than 4 months and I am about to have my 4th workshops!

They have different names of workshop, the first one was called Induction Workshop, the second one was called IB’s Dunia Conference with Lynn Erickson as the main speaker.

Dr. Lynn Erickson is a private consultant assisting schools and districts around the world with curriculum design and instruction. During the past seventeen years she has worked extensively with K-12 teachers and administrators nationally and internationally on the design of concept-based classroom and district level curricula and concept-based instruction. continue reading.

The third one is an In-House training.

All three of them is for International Baccalaureate curriculum. My school uses two curriculum, PYP and MYP (IB Curriculum) for grade 1 to 10 and Cambridge International Examination for grade 10 – 12 (we only have grade 10 for now). I have been to three IB Workshop…it’s time to go to Cambridge workshop. The workshop is only 1 day.

I’ll be leaving tomorrow afternoon…and be back here in blogging world (hopefully) on Saturday night ๐Ÿ™‚

Ps. I hope my brain doesn’t explode as I keep stuffing more knowledge before I have the time to process the previous one.


  1. Hahaha!! I know that “exploding brain” feeling well too! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Have a good trip to Singapore and come back safe and sound… and hopefully with your lil’ brain still intact. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    1. Fortunately…my brain is still intact but it’s very full now ๐Ÿ˜‰
      Thank you Miyuki, I had great time and will write about it tonight.

    1. It’s very different, the PYP and MYP…although both are IB but the systems are different. However they are planning to make it similar somewhere next year

  2. Have a great trip, Novia! And have fun.
    And try not to let your brain explode. You’ll probably need it later to deal with all your rambunctious students.

    1. Thank you Peter ๐Ÿ™‚
      Thank God my brain still in one piece ๐Ÿ˜‰ I got a very valuable lesson. I understand more about Cambridge now.

    1. The workshop was only one day ๐Ÿ˜‰
      I have already at home since Saturday but too busy to write a post ;p

      I will be visiting soon because I am going to link your post to mine ๐Ÿ™‚
