NEW – ONLINE: INSERVICE and CTLE The Power Of Student Agency

BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE COURSE:

This course is designed to help educators create an environment where students can be creative and self-directed learners. If we want students to thrive, we need to empower them with the tools to become architects of their own learning. This course aims to walk teachers through the process of designing student-centered inquiry lessons to create learning experiences that leverage student curiosity, encourages exploration, and allows the members of a learning community to learn with and from each other. There will be a strong emphasis on building student agency through choice and voice. Participants will explore the various purposes of utilizing choice, such as encouraging retrieval practice and providing students agency in terms of how they demonstrate their learning. Each module includes resources, templates, and action items designed to encourage teachers to take what they are learning and create resources and lessons they can use with students immediately.

This course will be conducted in an asynchronous online setting utilizing Google Classroom as the delivery platform. Participants meet virtually via online communities to discuss and share lessons and strategies. Personal Google accounts will be required to access the course.
