This course will investigate current developments in instructional design. A major focus will be to establish a firm understanding of elements in a multi-age program and how it differs from the traditional ‘graded’ and ‘split’ class programs; to learn about effective teaching, management and assessment strategies for a multi-age program; to develop communication skills needed when interacting with parents, administrators and colleagues about multi-age education; and develop a sample curriculum topic suitable for a multi-age class.

This course is designed to help you develop a clear understanding of Multiage Education, how it differs from the traditional 'graded' and 'split class’ programs, and envision Multiage Education as a transformative model in revisioning schools. You will learn about the research, issues, teaching strategies and management that support Multiage/Nongraded classrooms and explore how this model can evolve with technological and educational innovations in revisioning schools.
