Upcoming Workshops

Join Jay McTighe and the Authentic Education team for an engaging and thought-provoking summer institute in Understanding by Design®. This hands-on workshop will enable all participants to leave with both understanding and skill in the design of learning.

July 7-8, 2015Understanding by Design®: A 2-Day UbD User Workshop
The Hartford Hilton in Hartford, Connecticut

How do we know that students truly understand and can apply their knowledge in a powerful way?

How might we design assessments to emphasize in-depth understanding rather than low-level recall?

What role do student misconceptions play in teaching for understanding — and how do we overcome them?

This multi-media workshop is designed for educators of all levels — from those with little or no background in the Understanding by Design® framework to those with significant experience in implementation. As always, we will explore the essential questions of UbD, both introductory and advanced, as part of a multi-media investigation into the big ideas of teaching for understanding and transfer.
