Proficiency-based learning requires learners to be self-directed and self-reflective in their learning. Many teachers are finding that learners do not do this naturally now that there is a proficiency to work toward or a target identified. Rethinking the design of instruction and delivery can frame learning in a way that allows for students to make these necessary shifts. In this course, participants will analyze their current lesson design and delivery and redesign lessons and units in order to facilitate self-directed, proficiency-based learning experiences in classrooms. Participants will learn strategies for facilitating instruction that personalizes learning, creates more learner agency, increases engagement, and results in more meaningful reflection.
Required texts are not included in the course tuition.
