Understanding by Design 
Join Authentic Education co-founder Denise Wilbur for a highly interactive, multi-media workshop on the Understanding by Design framework. Work with colleagues from around the world for two intensive days to:
  • Explore the role of meaning-making and transfer in learning for understanding
  • Create draft units of study in the UbD 2.0 template
  • Craft essential questions and use them to build understanding
  • Develop authentic assessments that assess for transfer
  • Design an engaging and effective learning plan
  • Engage in thought-provoking exercises and simulations that deepen understanding of the key ideas and issues
You will leave with a comprehensive set of practical strategies, tools, model units, and professional development resources for ensuring that your classes and schools are understanding-focused and equip students to transfer their learning to challenging, new situations.  

This workshop is designed for both teachers and administrators, of all levels of experience with UbD.  

Our Summer Institute will be held at the Hilton in Downtown Hartford in Hartford, CT.   Located in the dining and entertainment district of Hartford, the Hilton lies within walking distance of dozens of restaurants and tourist attractions
