Course Code: EDUC629 Course ID: 4361 Credit Hours: 3 Level: Graduate
This advanced graduate course will examine the current best practices for personalization for each individual student in our K-16 classrooms. Personalization is closely related to two additionally important terms: individualization and differentiation. All three terms require a shift from a teacher-centered approach to an authentic student-centered approach. A true student-centered focus requires tailoring of lessons to the abilities, interests, preferences, future life dreams, socio-emotional attributes, and other needs of individual students. The course examines motivation, assessment, and technological tools and how they pertain to personalization in online, face-to-face and hybrid contexts. (Candidates in the M. Ed. Teaching-Concentration in Secondary Social Studies program must take the 16-week course version per the West Virginia Board of Education-no exceptions.)
