Design Thinking In The Classroom

Take this course

SPU student? Please go here to register

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.

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

Take this course

SPU student? Please go here to register

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.”

Teaching the “Elevator Pitch:” Real World Persuasive Writing 

Take this course

This course teaches you to:
