Learning & the Brain Conference

Redesigning Curriculum in the Age of COVID-19
September 12 • 12:00 PM – 3:15 PM ET / 9:00 AM – 12:15 PM PT

This webinar will use Zoom. 

How can we shape curriculum right now that will best serve our learners for the future?

If there is a silver lining to the current pandemic, it is the time that exists for soul searching on what we teach, how we engage learners, and how we ask them to demonstrate and share their learning. For teachers, it is in the identification, creation, and/or redesign of compelling problems, questions, and challenges that can give insight into a refreshed curriculum storyline. Otherwise we are more likely to recycle what we have immediately in front of us, to cover old material, and to miss an opportunity. For students, it is in the way they become more skillful, sophisticated, and strategic throughout their school years. This is especially helpful now when students may feel increased pressure/anxiety in anticipation of the pace of learning to “catch up” for what was missed. For the school community, it is in reaching consensus on which realistic priorities will be central to our efforts. Otherwise, there may be a tendency to go for the granular, memorize some facts, scramble to construct where “we left off.”
