This PDO course, Where Great Teaching Begins: Designing Learning Objectives for Effective Instruction, will give teachers and teacher leaders a deeper understanding of how to effectively plan for student thinking and learning. Using chapter readings and the ideas of “deep design” from Anne Reeves’s book Where Great Teaching Begins (ASCD, 2011), the course focuses on the critical role that student learning objectives play in the learning process. It will also examine how these learning objectives inform assessment and instruction. Course participants will also use the ideas of deep design to decide how to take proper advantage of technology tools for instruction in the 21st century.
(ASCD PD Online course, 2014) Self-paced asynchronous online course. Upon completion, learners will be awarded an ASCD Certificate worth up to 20 Clock Hours.
