       In this 6 week largely asynchronous, self-paced course, we’ll work to design learning for your students that makes it easier to meet the needs of all your students (even when they’re absent), allows you to have a clearer picture of student learning, and includes a blended learning framework to allow you to work with smaller groups of students while the learning continues in your classroom.
