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