Shifting to Sustainable Student-led Workflows with Blended Learning & UDL

Live Sessions

You can create a customized learning experience for your teachers by selecting the workflows you want to target in your training session. 2 workflows: half-day 3 workflows: full-day

Description: Teachers are exhausted because they do the lion’s share of the work. This workshop will guide teachers in reimagining time-consuming, teacher-led workflows that are ineffective and help them to shift to more sustainable student-led workflows. This workshop will focus on developing a partnership with learners and embracing workflows that position the learners as active agents in the learning process. We’ll explore how teachers can leverage blended learning to create the time and space for these sustainable workflows and use the principles at the heart of Universal Design for Learning to ensure these workflows are accessible, equitable, and inclusive. Teachers will leave this training with concrete strategies designed to help them shift to more student-led sustainable workflows. These workshops are hands-on and practice-based, so participants will leave with resources they can use immediately!

This collection of workshops is based on my upcoming book with Dr. Katie Novak titled UDL and Blended Learning 2: Shifting to Sustainable Student-led Workflows, which will be released in spring 2022!

Workflow Shift #1 - From Transfer of Information (Lecture) to Student Discovery

Workflow Shift #2 - From Whole Group Teacher-led to Small-group Student-led (Online and Offline) Discussion

​​​​​​​Workflow Shift #3 - From Reading as Solitary Endeavor to Reading for Connection

​​​​​​​Workflow Shift #6 - From Formative Assessment as Teacher Tool to a Metacognitive Skill Building Tool for Learners

​​​​​​​Workflow Shift #7 - From Feedback on Finished Products to Feedback During the Process

​​​​​​​Workflow Shift #8 - From Teacher Assessment to Self-Assessment

​​​​​​​Workflow Shift #9 - From Teacher Initiating Parent Communication to Learners Owning the Conversation About Their Progress

​​​​​​​Workflow Shift #10 - From Teacher Project Design to Student-Initiated Project-Based Learning

The Building Blocks of Online Course Design

School closures can result from a health emergency or an extreme weather event. Schools and districts need to prepare teachers with the training necessary to take their offline courses online. This will make it possible for teachers to successfully engage students in high-quality learning at home in the event of a school closure. This full-day workshop (offered both online and offline) will help teachers to build a community of inquiry online and master the basic building blocks of an online course: virtual lectures, online discussions, personalized practice, and collaborative group work. Participants will learn how to leverage online conferencing tools and video creation tools to transfer information, design dynamic online discussion questions to engage students in asynchronous academic conversations, leverage online practice and review tools, and encourage collaboration.

Cultivating Social Emotional Learning Skills in a Blended Learning Environment

Social-emotional learning (SEL) must be woven into the fabric of every class to ensure that students cultivate the following skills: self-awareness, self-management, responsible decision-making, relationship skills, and social awareness. Educators who weave SEL skills into the fabric of their classes can help students share the responsibility for learning. They also create learning environments where students feel safe taking risks, engaging in academic conversations, collaborating around shared tasks, and creative problem-solving. SEL skills are crucial in a blended learning environment where students enjoy more autonomy and agency.

*Audience: Teachers and Coaches

*Book pairing:  The Complete Guide to Blended Learning

The Key to Driving Deeper Learning

The teacher cannot be the only person in the classroom thinking about the students’ learning. Students must be actively engaged in thinking about, monitoring, evaluating, and reflecting on their learning. Research shows that developing metacognition helps students to apply what they are learning (knowledge and skills) in new and novel contexts, improve their ability to be strategic and flexible learners, and develop resilience in the face of challenges. This session will focus on technology-infused strategies teachers can use to help students develop their metacognitive skills so they can be more active and engaged learners. This work is critical to developing expert learners who are resourceful, strategic, and motivated.

The Shift to Student-Led: Reimagining Classroom Workflows with UDL and Blended Learningby Dr. Catlin Tucker

The Shift to Student-Led: Reimagining Classroom Workflows with UDL and Blended Learning

by Dr. Catlin Tucker

The Shift to Student-Led by Catlin R. Tucker & Katie Novak

Your Guide to Student-Led Learning

Catlin Tucker and Katie Novak have worked with too many educators who are frustrated and disillusioned with the teaching profession. They know that teachers are drowning in work and unrealistic demands. Many are mentally and emotionally exhausted by the uncertainty and constant change created by the pandemic. In this follow-up to UDL and Blended Learning, the authors have set out to help teachers reimagine their approach to this work so that it is sustainable and rewarding.

Each chapter in The Shift to Student-Led takes apart one traditional teacher-led workflow, examining the problems it presents teachers and students, what the research says versus what the reality in the classroom is, and how UDL and blended learning can free teachers from the “sage on the stage” role and place students at the center of their learning. These reimagined student-led workflows help students develop self-awareness, internal motivation, and self-regulation skills, which are critical to becoming expert learners.

Intended for K–12 educators, instructional coaches, and school leaders who want to create academically robust, inclusive learning communities, this book is full of principles, strategies, and resources that can be put into practice right away and at any level.
