I am so excited about this platform. I cannot tell you enough how great these classes and activities are.
Ive always thought I treated each student as an individual when we have person-to-person interactions, but the equality vs. equity dichotomy mentioned in another course is something I'll consider more carefully.
I love all of these ideas! I'm really looking forward to implementing some of these this Fall.
This course has reaffirmed for me the importance of taking time to build community in our classes.

Courses are structured in a consistent way to provide familiarity and reduce cognitive load.

Each step in a course encourages reflection and sharing the experience of applying the lessons in an educator’s practice that supports peer learning.
