When it comes to teaching in the classroom one size does not fit all. This free online course - designed for STEM teachers in primary and secondary schools, and sixth form and further education colleges - will help you improve your understanding and use of Differentiating for Learning (DfL) within the STEM subjects. It is designed as companion to our successful Assessment for Learning in STEM Teaching course. Understand Differentiating for Learning in theory and practice Through this course you will: see extensive real-life classroom video footage; examine the key principles of effective differentiated learning; focus on differentiating by task using examples from the STEM subjects; get a range of practical ideas for how you can best respond to the assessment evidence elicited from your students; and explore the links between Differentiating for Learning and Assessment for Learning. Enjoy your teaching more As the course progresses you’ll be encouraged to try Differentiating for Learning in your classroom and laboratory, actively reflect on what you discover in the process, and share your experience as part of the course discussions. You’ll also be invited to read some of the research literature about Differentiating for Learning. Your learners will gain as a result - and you’ll enjoy your teaching more.
