We know that learning is only truly meaningful when it is personal and when the learners are active
participants in shaping their learning. By offering students an opportunity to be co-creators of
curriculum and learning, educators can engage learners in lasting and meaningful experiences. By
becoming active listeners, educators can create an environment that is learner centered and
recognizes that we teach students, not subjects. This course was created to help educators better
understand the current research supporting personalized instruction and to introduce methods to
increase student choice and voice in the classroom.
