Adult Multiple Intelligences and Differentiated Instruction

Course Dates: October 13–December 12, 2008; Online chats during Lessons 3,

Course Description
Research conducted by the National Center for the Study of Adult Learning
and Literacy shows that instructional practices inspired by Multiple
Intelligences (MI) theory resulted in high levels of authentic instruction
and student engagement.

Integrate your understanding of Multiple Intelligences (MI) theory with the
power of differentiated instruction in this facilitated, eight-session
course. You’ll learn how to apply MI theory and differentiate instruction
for all levels of adult basic education and English for speakers of other
languages. The facilitator will guide you as you develop your own MI-based
lessons.

Objectives

Upon completion of this course you will be able to:

*Apply the theory of multiple intelligences (MI) to design learning
activities that match your learning objectives

*Use varying methods of differentiated instruction (DI) that address the
different skills and interests of your learners

*Apply knowledge of your own MI profile to your classroom teaching

*Produce and reflect on a lesson or unit using both MI and DI
