TIE's Customized Learning Series weaves several smaller professional learning modules into a larger personalized learning experience. CL Professional Learning is best experienced as a blended learning experience: a mix of face-to-face sessions and self-paced online classes. The online series has three groups of three: each series houses three one-credit online classes of complimentary topics for educators to develop skills for implementing customized learning.
While educators can participate in the Customized Learning Series as stand-lone classes, we recommend the blended-learning combination of self-paced online courses, face-to-face sessions, and facilitated collaboration to give teachers a more complete customized learning experience.
Face-to-Face: While the self-paced online classes are a great way for teachers to gain skills, some areas of customized learning are better served through discussion/dialog, hands-on guided practice, and reflection. The face-to-face component focuses on important topics for teachers to truly incorporate and manage customized learning, including:
- higher order thinking and complex reasoning
- grouping/regrouping students
- technology immersion
- facilitator/mentor role
Within each series, three-credits worth of the content is delivered as independent self-paced, mastery-based online classes included as a TIE Membership benefit. The other two credits utilize face-to-face and facilitated blended learning experiences contracted separately with TIE. Finally, your teachers will create an instructional product or unit that incorporates all the components from their series.
Online: The self-paced customized learning classes are grouped into series.
