A free, flexible, nine-week online course that will allow K-16 educators to learn about how deeper learning can be put into practice.
"Deeper learning describes a range of instructional approaches that delivers the skills and knowledge students will need to succeed in a world that is changing at an unprecedented pace. Deeper learning prepares students to:
- Master core academic content
- Think critically and solve complex problems
- Work collaboratively
- Communicate effectively
- Learn how to learn (e.g. self-directed learning)
- Academic mindsets"
