About: 

Historically, schools have approached student learning with a one-size-fits-all mentality and have struggled to adapt to changing student needs. That ends now. In order to help you change the way your students learn, this course will expand your knowledge related to learning differences, provide actionable strategies to impact the learning experience of your students, and cultivate a growth mindset related to learning differences. Educators who complete the course are eligible for a certificate of completion for 25 hours of CEU credit.

Objectives: 
To leave participating educators with an understanding of what learning differences are and how they affect all students.
To foster a growth mindset or problem solving approach among educators as they work with students.
To provide educators with job-embedded strategies that will help them as they meet the diverse needs of all students.
To connect educators with other like-minded educators to support the expansion of their own personalized learning network.
