About the Course

In this Students at the Center book study, educator learners will be introduced to the basic tenets of personalized learning and how it can positively impact student success. Through the course text, educators will also engage with skills essential to student growth and development through the 16 Habits of Mind first created by Arthur L. Costa and Bena Kallick.

Course participants will define personalized learning and discover small steps that can be taken toward a fully personalized learning experience for students. Additionally, educator learners will engage with others in thoughtful discussion to challenge or reaffirm pedagogical beliefs and support each other through the creation of plans that will allow students opportunities to emphasize their unique voice, participate in co-creation and social construction activities, and build their own self-discovery skills.

Great class! A course which presents excellent strategies to begin a shift to Personalized Learning and a nice balance between reading the book, discussion posts and assignments. Facilitator was flexible with timing and insightful with feedback. Nice classroom examples for multiple age groups.
