Growth Mindset

15 November 2022 | 10:30 - 10:50 | English | Differentiating Differently

Differentiated instruction is a pedagogical philosophy that centers around the fact that each learner is unique and if used appropriately can be an effective tool for the classroom. But can it also be used as a tool to impact, inspire and engage learners outside the classroom? In this workshop, join Ruzina as she walks you through the process of differentiation using neuroscience and positive psychology. You will learn what differentiation is, why we need it now more than ever and how to use it in an ever-diverse and ever-changing world. This workshop is ideal for vocational teachers who are looking for new and innovative ways to meet the unique learning needs of their students.
