Personalizing Learning for Your Students - TTC 103

Previously titled: Differentiated Strategies

Not being offered in 2017.

In the non-selective admissions environment of most international schools, effective teachers strive to personalize learning to meet the needs of diverse learners. Participants in this course will develop a framework for effective inclusive instruction by gaining practical experience in applying the five major conceptual keys of personalized learning:

  • Knowing our students
  • Knowing our curriculum
  • Knowing our assessments
  • Knowing our pedagogy
  • Knowing our relationships

Specifically, participants will apply their knowledge in:

  • Data-gathering in order to develop a deep understanding of students as learners
  • Metacognitive unit planning for instructional delivery
  • Developing approaches to assessment that include students as end-users of assessment data and to support future learning
  • Acquiring research-based strategies that support differentiation
  • Learning and practicing principles of adult and student collaboration to enhance student learning
  • Assisting students to better understand themselves as learners

In order to access course materials, participants are required to bring a laptop computer with wireless internet capability and appropriate adapters to this course.
