This event is provided at no cost to Kansas educators. Materials can be found in the materials section once you've registered.
This is a 2-Day professional learning opportunity for any Kansas educator. Day 1 will be held on March 5, 2024 Day 2 will be held on March 26, 2024.
Both general educators and special education providers will learn what differentiation is and is not. Through case study analysis, participants will practice a retrofit approach to differentiation by identifying mismatches and barriers based on a learner's strengths, background knowledge, cultural experiences, interests, learning preferences and needs. You will see examples of how to proactively differentiate content and materials, products and assessments, and processes of learning.
You will make connections to the Universal Design for Learning framework and have an opportunity to complete a culminating task that will be co-designed with the session facilitator. Shonda Anderson, Lead State Trainer and Coaching Coordinator for Kansas TASN Co-Teaching Project will facilitate on both days. As an additional option, one graduate credit is available through Baker University for those who complete a follow-up assignment and coaching session. The cost of the credit is $80.
Registration may be cancelled up to 14 days prior to the event for a full refund. Cancellations received within 14 days of the event will not be refunded. No-show registrations will also not be refunded.
