Curriculum Development Using UbD
March 11 @ 9:00 am - March 25 @ 12:00 pm
Live Video Conferencing (LVC) replaces much of our traditionally offered face-to-face sessions offered in previous years. For the convenience of our participants, these courses are offered in much like a live video webinar format (Live Video Conferencing) with a Statewide Field Team live instructor. Traditionally, these series were offered in two-day increments several times throughout the year. In 2018-2019 these courses will be offered in much shorter segments (three hours) every other week spread out throughout the school year . Each series has a distinct number of sessions, day of the week, and time of day. These will be identified in each session description. Materials presented in these courses are available to participants on the Statewide Field Team’s Online Learning Platform.
This course is offered electronically using live video conferencing equipment. Participants engage with all participants and the facilitator in live interactions from the convenience of their own district location using SWFT provided software. Participants must have a device with a camera and mic.
Once a district has developed and communicated its visions for high-quality instruction, how does it equip its teachers to realize them? This course provides participants with an approach to developing a system for curriculum and assessment using the Understanding by Design framework developed by Grant Wiggins and Jay McTighe, a method to curriculum creation which empowers teachers to teach to the highest levels and prepares students to understand the purpose and necessity of the content in their own world.
This course meets using Live Video Conferencing every two weeks on Monday mornings beginning March 11, 2019 from 9:00am – 12:00pm. Two sessions total. A complete schedule and orientation to the learning technology will be given in the first session on March 11th.
