"As a long-time special education teacher, I am always looking to stay on top of the latest research-based strategies, as well as further my own education, and I feel that the graduate-level courses offered by SPU and instructed by Tammy Berg were an excellent means to accomplish this goal. The courses were well-designed, challenging, and convenient, and whether it was diving deep into the world of educating students with disorders such as ASD and ADHD, or dissecting the minutiae of the RTI process, Instructor Tammy Berg was always readily available for support, clarification, and guidance. If you are currently working in education and looking to advance both your career and your knowledge, I highly recommend both SPU and Instructor Tammy Berg."

Understanding by Design: How the Brain Learns Best

Print Based Course Printed Course


How can educators leverage neuroscience research about how the human brain learns? How can we use this information to improve curriculum, instruction, and assessment so our students achieve deep learning and understanding in all subject areas? This course answers these questions by merging insights from neuroscience with Understanding by Design (UbD), the framework used by thousands of educators to craft units of instruction and authentic assessments that emphasize understanding rather than recall. The projected outcome of this course is to provide educators with the knowledge, understanding, and methodologies needed to design and implement units that empower teachers and students alike to capitalize on the brain's tremendous capacity for learning.
