Differentiated Instruction: Inclusive Strategies for Successful Learning

Description

Concept by Francesco Molinari

Inclusive education and modern pedagogies presuppose teachers’ capacity to adapt their teaching to the individual needs of each student. Yet this can be written easily on paper, but hard – if not impossible – to realize in practice!

How to solve the puzzle of differentiated instruction? How to teach one subject effectively while taking into consideration the manifold needs of all learners?

The course will make participants discover how to differentiate their teaching to take into consideration the individual needs and inclinations of every student.

Differentiated learning (or instruction) is specifically based on understanding and promoting five main areas:

  • Understanding students’ interests and inclinations;
  • Using differentiated content;
  • Understanding individual learning processes;
  • Activities to promote collaboration in the classroom;
  • Differentiated assessment strategies.

Participants will explore one of these areas every day of the course. Thus, they will learn to create a positive learning environment, provide students with differentiated content, to design lesson plans that take into account all aspects essential to the development of individual students and respect individual specificities and generate assessment procedures that consider the differential learning of the student.

Significantly, when teaching is planned with differentiated learning, students exert a positive influence on each other and take advantage of each individual’s strengths and interests to improve their learning.

By the end of the course, participants will know how to make their teaching more differentiated, and how to involve actively students in collective learning.
