Multiple Intelligences

This course is designed to assist educators in the K-12 setting and beyond to develop an awareness of the role multiple intelligences plays in knowledge acquisition. Educators will gain insight into their own preferred learning style and be equipped with the tools necessary to identify the learning niche of each of the students they serve. Students will participate in several assignments that reinforce the concepts and strategies found within the course modules and reference materials. Learners will ultimately create a lesson plan incorporating the concept of multiple intelligences in a subject area of their choice.
