Foundations of Effective Teaching: Cultivating a Student-Centered Classroom

Course Coordinator:

Melanie Hobbs

About the course

This course is a blended-model professional learning opportunity designed to inspire and support educators in becoming reflective practitioners while meeting the highest expectations of the profession.

This newly revised course re-envisions the learning environment as a place where teacher and student identities are celebrated and affirmed; social emotional learning is intentionally planned for; and student agency is supported through equitable, responsive structures to help all students thrive.

Participants will explore foundational research through the lens of student-centered engagement and instruction and investigate practices that support autonomy and choice, activate critical thinking and deeper learning along with ways to maximize learning time inside and outside of the classroom.
