Design Thinking In The Classroom

Use design thinking to bring out the maker in every student, engage all kinds of learners, and teach 21st century skills! Colleges and schools are hiring design thinkers, and design/build processes are a way to add a whole lot of fun engagement to your classroom.  But what is design thinking really, and how can it really help build the core skills and competency-based learning that you need to see develop in your classroom? Design thinking describes a set of processes for invention and learning that are highly valued in many companies today.  And for our schools and students, the design/build process is an incredible addition to the classroom — one that is inherently student-centered, therapeutic, collaborative, creative, and focused on problem solving.  It teaches 21st century skills, and can incorporate lessons in research, technology, science, math, art, history, and language.  Learn about the design thinking framework, and get a rock solid toolkit for applying it to your own curriculum in any subject, or to any school- or system-wide challenge – with great results.

Create engaging online learning that works

This course provides a modern framework for thinking about the possibilities for online learning, and also helps you develop a full toolkit for creating online classes that use universal design and really engage your students. We show you strategies for creating classes that teach for mastery and competency-based learning, get diverse voices “in the room,” are creative, active, and project-based, and that work with your teaching style, curriculum benchmarks, and subject matter. It provides strategies to meet learners where they are, create formative assessments, invite participation from every student, support project-based work and collaboration, and assess and engage through gamification.

  • Meet learners where they are, teach for mastery and competency
  • Make every voice count
  • Support active, project-based learning and collaborating online
  • Assess where your students are at with quizzes, games, and comments

WE’VE COME A LONG WAY, LET’S KEEP GOING! STRATEGIES FOR TEACHING GENDER EQUITY

As teachers what we want most is to empower students; because we know that people learn best when they are most fully themselves. Yet as Sadker, Sadker, and Zittleman (2009) note, “despite decades of effort to create fair classrooms and schools, gender bias is alive and well, and in some ways growing. School practices continue to send boys and girls down different life paths.”  Gender privilege and stereotypes are so ingrained in our culture that it takes some conscious work and strategies to undo the habits of thought and action that might inhibit learning and encourage gender bias—both in terms of masculinity AND femininity. This class will facilitate thinking about gender, gender boundaries, power dynamics, voice, stereotypes and more. It’s a safe place to think and talk about how our own ideas (conscious and unconscious) about gender impact our teaching. Students will finish this course with a toolbox of new activities and curriculum that will help them work toward real equity for every student in the classroom—girls and boys, men and women.

Colleen Broderick

Instructor
Colleen Broderick has a master’s degree in English with an emphasis in women’s literature, feminist theory and gender studies.  After twenty years of teaching at the university level, she finds herself more in love with teaching than ever. “Teaching is my not so sneaky way of getting paid to learn. It’s the best job in the world!”  Her interest in gender studies grows out of a passion for inclusion, a desire to empower students and help them give voice to the way that learning impacts their lives. And perhaps no issue is proving more impactful in the 21st than gender. From pronoun usage to #Me Too, ideas about gender are shifting rapidly, with change coming from every direction. “While the pace of change may seem almost dizzying at times, that’s also what makes it exciting,” Colleen insists. “ I look forward to exploring all of these new ideas with fellow educators. We are in a moment of real transformation, and the more  we understand it, the better we will be able to help our students respond to it in ways that will help them grow.”

PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT COURSES AND WORKSHOPS

Inquiry and Reasoning: The Core of Writing Instruction for Every Grade

Have Julia join you for an amazing day (or half day) of professional development in teaching writing across all grades, curriculum, and languages. Julia provides the “why” to teaching essays, and helps teachers see beyond essays and forms of writing to the core principles of reasoning. This workshop distills the “aha” moments of literally thousands of students and shares what Julia has learned from teaching college writing and listening to college and community college professors talk about teaching writing for 20 years.

This course will COMPLETELY REFRESH YOUR TEACHERS’ APPROACH TO WRITING INSTRUCTION.

 

It’s basically her method for getting college students to “get writing” designed for kindergarten on up. It’s the same thing she’s been teaching other teachers of writing for many years. It’s an “aha” for a lot of teachers too. The minute students are writing, they should be learning to reason, and they should understand what reasoning is. From an email to a blog post to a job application to a book – it’s the same core of reasoning. Yes, first graders can do this! And they should.

 
This hands-on workshop models teaching writing to all types of learners and:
  • Provides the answer to why we make verbal reasoning core in school — a refresher on reasoning and its relationship to early ideas about democracy, justice, and rule of law – good to know, and good for students to know.
  • Shares a way of teaching written reasoning for the earliest grades by breaking it down to its basic components.
  • Shares ways to teach verbal reasoning to students with all types of learning styles.
  • Creates hands-on workshop time for teachers to turn any curriculum project into a lesson in written or oral reasoning – add writing, research, and/or debate to your project and make it fun.
  • Shares loads of case studies and resources for interesting, engaging, real-world projects that fit into existing curriculum.

Teaching the “Elevator Pitch:” Real World Persuasive Writing 

The fun, engaging course–taught by a veteran college writing professor and assistant director of composition, with almost two decades of experience teaching students to move from the five paragraph essay to fluid, well-reasoned, “real-world” persuasive writing–will be a welcome inspiration to any language arts teacher, school district, or organization that wants to prepare students to write for college and/or working life.

 

This course teaches you to:

  • Connect writing curriculum to real world projects.
  • Teach the elevator pitch as a means to understanding verbal reasoning.
  • Incorporate writing into project-based learning.
  • Teach writing through the lens of reasoning and evidence, and apply this model to any kind of persuasive writing (which is most writing).

This 2-hour online, supported, multimedia workshop can be done for professional development hours, and you can apply it to your curriculum and earn credit for it through the University of the Pacific (see the bottom of this course page). It can be used as a day of inspiring and helpful learning for districts via our self-lead online course.
