IED 525 - Designing and Teaching for Understanding

This course is built around the Understanding by Design® framework and emphasizes “backwards design” (and hence links to the Assessment for 21 st Century Learning course), teaching and assessing for understanding, and differentiation. The focus will be on the design curriculum and learning experiences that make it more likely that students will understand the “big ideas” of content and be able to apply them in meaningful ways. Course participants will apply a set of practical and proven design tools and templates to create or refine a unit of study and a yearlong curriculum map.
