ONLINE: INSERVICE and CTLE Discover the Pathway to Highly Effective Teaching


As educators and designers, we are called to architect learning experiences for all
learners by creating lessons with flexible goals, methods, materials, and assessments.
This course is designed to delve deeper into best practices by examining the framework of teaching developed by Charlotte Danielson, highlighting seven essential elements of
great teaching and providing a clear pathway to effective instruction. Participants will
explore how the Understanding by Design (UBD) framework and the Blended Learning
model, when combined, can create flexible learning landscapes that support a student-centered learning environment. Participants will also examine digital tools to foster
essential teaching practices that build on the foundation of planning and facilitating
engaging and coherent instruction designed to meet the various needs of our students.
There will be a strong emphasis on classroom equity and its role in creating an optimal
learning environment for all students.
