Putting the Personalization in PLPs
Appropriate for all educators
In this course, we’ll examine how to truly personalize education for your students. From working with students in identifying their interests, to adopting curriculum to meet individual students needs, we’ll explore strategies and ways to make student learning more personal for students. We’ll use an experiential approach getting you involved right away on a personalized project and ensuring that you leave with relevant, usable resources you can implement in your classroom or school.
