Differentiated instruction and authentic performance tasks help students learn with a deeper understanding and lead to greater learning outcomes. While the benefits are clear, how to implement this in virtual and in-person learning environments can present challenges for educators.
In this complimentary webinar, Jay McTighe and Carol Ann Tomlinson will explain how the Understanding by Design® curriculum framework and Differentiated Instruction support the use of authentic performance tasks and Project-Based Learning (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

The collection of performance tasks developed by Defined Learning supports the UbD framework for curriculum, instruction and assessment.
