"I have just completed two Individualized Learning Correspondence Courses from Tammy Berg this year. They were Teaching Young Children With ADHD and Understanding Autism Spectrum Disorders: Tips for Teachers. The courses were excellent! Both had wonderful resources that were very relevant to my job. I found the assignments to be helpful and applicable to my current position as an educator of young children. I would highly recommend these courses."

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.
