The course shell will open October 6, 2013 to students enrolled in the course.

Elements of the course include:

  • Collaboration and sharing knowledge with other educators 
  • Adapting course curriculum to teachers’ classroom instructional needs
  • Small size class sessions grounded in participants’ questions, inquiry and experimentation, as well as research.
