Differentiated instruction and authentic performance tasks help students learn with a deeper understanding and can lead to greater learning outcomes. While the benefits are clear, how to implement this in the classroom and in virtual learning settings can present challenges for educators.
In this complimentary webinar on October 14th, Jay McTighe and Carol Ann Tomlinson will explain how the Understanding by Design curriculum framework and Differentiated Instruction supports the use of authentic performance tasks and PBL. You’ll also explore:
- Definitions of differentiation and authentic learning, along with common misconceptions
- Tips for uncovering new opportunities to differentiate through PBL
- Assessment practices that make learning more meaningful and more purposeful
- Strategies for engaging students in meaningful learning, whether you’re teaching students in-person, remotely, or in a blended/hybrid environment
