If you have been a teacher , you probably know by now that "One size fits all" is an absolute myth because each student learns differently. All students have different abilities, different learning styles, and preferences etc. This means that as a teacher, you will need to plan instructions keeping the learner profiles in mind to maximize each student's potential.
Differentiated instruction (DI) is an educational approach of customizing instructions to meet the needs of each student. DI ensures best learning engagement for every student and does not necessarily translate to extra work for you.
In this course, you will learn the skills necessary to differentiate instructions effectively, in order to optimize individual students' learning. You will learn different strategies to identify individual student's needs and learning styles, and plan instructions accordingly to meet those needs.
The course will be taught online using examples, videos & presentations with explanations, reading materials, case studies and practice quiz. By the end of this course, you will be equipped to effectively differentiate instructions for individual students and make a significant impact.
