EASL Level 2: Course Facilitators
Full course description
- Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is a research-based set of principles to guide the design of learning environments that are accessible and effective for all. But that doesn’t mean your curriculum needs to be diluted or personalized to every single student. By designing for those “in the margins” and creating a flexible curriculum, you will be able to serve all the diverse learners in your EASL classroom.
- The structure, process, and essential characteristics of an effective TBL module are emphasized as participants complete a pre-workshop reading, take an IRAT (readiness assessment test), and actively engage with their assigned team members during the workshop.
- Motivation is the process that initiates, guides, and maintains goal-oriented behaviors. Self-motivated students can succeed in almost any learning environment, but most students need support, guidance, and modeling from the instructor to become motivated to learn. This is especially true for first year students, first generation students, and students from underrepresented populations.
- Metacognition (thinking about thinking) is the process by which students learn how to learn through reflection. This cognitive habit helps them to identify learning strategies that work best and how to transfer skills and knowledge to diverse learning environments.
