International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme Virtual Open House Event (2020-2021)

November 18, 2020


To maintain communication with parents during the distance learning phase and to ensure that they remain informed of the approaches the Diploma Programme (DP) team is implementing as part of the on-line learning experience, Houssam Eddine Hariri High School International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) team conducted a virtual Open House on November 13 via Microsoft Teams. The HHHS DP staff provided the parents of the fourth DP cohort – the fourth cohort expected to graduate on May 2022 - with an overview about the new learning environment which continues to reflect the IB philosophy and the school practices as IB World School.
The presentation highlighted the significance of social dialogue between our school and other partners in this process. Here, it was necessary to highlight the advantage of having the head of the school, Mrs. Mona Majzoub, as the Chair of Association of IB World Schools in Lebanon, putting our school in the heart of these dialogues which happen on a national and international level.
During the open house, the DP Core staff explained the significance of the of Creativity, Activity and Service (CAS), Theory of Knowledge (TOK) and the Extended Essay (EE) as key foundations to effective implementation of the Diploma Programme in any context. Afterwards, the subject teachers shared with the audience their approaches to teaching their courses focusing on making thinking more visible for the learners during the on-line learning phase. The demonstrations have also highlighted the efficiency of Microsoft Teams as a virtual platform allowing both learners and teachers to experience learning in a more robust context.
