Introduction to Boys' Schools: A Course for Teachers New to Boys Schools
February 1 – February 26, 2016
July 25 – August 19, 2016
October 10 – November 4, 2016
This course is collaboratively designed with the IBSC as an orientation to single‐gender boys’ schools for newly hired teachers. Participants connect and collaborate with each other to explore the possible implications of research on boys’ learning in the classroom environment. The course explores ways to create a student‐centered learning space. By the end of the four week experience, teachers have a clearer sense of what it means to work in an all‐boys school and ways that one can create a classroom atmosphere and curriculum that maximizes how boys learn.
Academic Planning for Online and Blended Learning
June 6 – July 1, 2016
This course helps curricular leaders, department chairs, and senior administrators understand the academic implications, challenges, and advantages of online and blended learning for independent
schools. The course covers the landscape of online and blended learning, the strategic academic decisions that schools face, and the practical implications of implementing online and blended programs in a school. During the course, participants are exposed to leaders and experts in online learning, including (and most importantly) experts within the independent school community. This course is also appropriate for schools that are beginning to incorporate online or blended learning into their curriculum, or who are contemplating doing so.
Introduction to Teaching Online
April 18 - May 13, 2016
This course is designed for the secondary teacher or administrator who has limited experience with online courses, but who is interested in learning more about pedagogy and methods used when creating online content. Participants will explore: the mindset shift needed when moving from face-to-face instruction to online instruction; standards and good practice for online curriculum development and teaching; and essential tools and resources for online courses. The course concludes by asking each participant to design a unit for one of their own courses to be taught entirely online.
