Jan. 23: Joyful Learning: Using Active & Collaborative Structures to Differentiate Instruction


January 23, 2023

Teachers in K-12 classrooms are increasingly embracing the goals and values of inclusive schools. They have moved beyond the "why" and are interested in the "how." This workshop is focused on one low-prep, high-yield strategy that not only works well in inclusive spaces but is ideal for use in that context: active and collaborative learning. Participants in this interactive session will apply principles of Universal Design for Learning and differentiated instruction by exploring a number of collaborative, active, and brain-compatible techniques aimed at engaging students, making lessons more joyful, and creating space for students with and without disabilities to learn together.
