The Friday Institute’s Professional Learning and Leadership Collaborative has created a series of learning opportunities designed to build educator capacity to address diverse learning needs across the educational system. We have designed online and blended learning programs for students, teachers, instructional coaches, principals and higher education faculty/staff. Programs include:
EdNC: Teachers eager to gain better understanding of learning differences
The Friday Institute has helped develop a Massive Online Open Course for Educators (MOOC-Ed) that K-12 teachers, instructional coaches, instructional support teams and administrators can take to supplement their understanding of learning differences and adopt a common vocabulary around everyday struggles in their classrooms.
EdNC: For students, success with learning differences means self-advocacy and finding comfort in community
At NC State’s Friday Institute for Educational Innovation, a team has put together various courses on learning differences: one multi-course designed for students and another designed for teachers.
EdNC: Learning Differences: More than a politically correct term for learning disabilities
In part two of this series on learning differences, EdNC reporter Rupen Fofaria takes a look at what “learning differences” means with Friday Institute's Alex Dreier and Dr. Mary Ann Wolf.
