Leading Conceptual Learning and Transfer (Fall Cohort)
Effectively lead teachers through the change process to place conceptual learning and transfer at the heart of curriculum and instruction.
Open now through December 31, 2022
This advanced level course is designed for instructional coaches, teacher leaders, and school administrators who want to effectively lead teachers through the change process to place conceptual learning and transfer at the heart of curriculum and instruction.
Previous experience with conceptual learning is required before enrolling in this course -- such as completing one of our introductory or in-depth courses, or leaders in our partner school program, or other advanced experience with conceptual learning. If you are relatively new but eager and ready, watch this webinar and explore our website to determine if you are ready to join us!
All assignments are designed to work seamlessly with your existing commitments as leaders because we know time is too precious a gift to waste!
The course contains 8 modules with short videos and short readings you can conduct on your own schedule, a community message board for questions and discussions, as well as optional live sessions to ask questions and receive feedback. Each participant will coach one or two teachers and design action plans for effectively leading toward conceptual learning that transfers.
Space is limited to 50 people for the cohort because we will provide individualized feedback and support.
Participants who complete the course will receive a certificate noting 10 hours and 1 continuing education credit (CEU), plus a Learning That Transfers Level 3 badge to use in emails, resume, etc. We hope you'll join us!
20% off for 4+ participants from the same school. Participants will have access to course materials for three weeks after the course ends.
