Building the Modern Classroom

A Self-Directed Workshop for Innovative Educators

Welcome to Building the Modern Classroom! This course will help you design a student-centered classroom that features blended instruction, self-paced structures, and mastery-based assessment. It is our belief that such classrooms are better places for students to learn and for teachers to teach. We hope that, by the end of this course, you will agree.
