    Please pardon our cross-posting

    We are excited to announce that Independent Curriculum Group webinars will henceforth involve NO COST to participants; we have had an overwhelming response to our most recent free webinars, and we want to make these terrific resources as widely available as possible.

    This week our webinars delve into some original and highly intentional aspects of curriculum design, with a focus on making learning more engaging and relevant to students.

    In the first of next week’s webinars, Jared Colley of The Oakridge School (TX) and Seth Burgess of Lausanne Collegiate School (TN) explain how they’ve collaborated across schools (and even time zones!) to create classes the incorporate game structure and theory to ramp up student engagement and create compelling examples of project-based learning and interest-based assessment. Register for THE PSYCHOLOGY OF GAMIFICATION (Tuesday, April 19 at 3pm ET) here.

    In the second, Matt Cavellier of Shattuck-St. Mary’s School (MN) explains how SSM uses a multi-year project to help students discover interests and then articulate and refine these into passions in the humanities in a school whose thoughtfully designed programs are renowned for bringing out the very best in students with a multiplicity of talents. Register for MAJORING IN HIGH SCHOOL (Wednesday, April 20 at 3pm ET) here.

    As always, these ICG webinars will be recorded and archived. You can see all of our past webinars on the RESOURCES page of our website.

    And please stay tuned, as we are planning a series of schedule-related webinars for the month of May that we believe will be of great interest to schools exploring schedule design and schedule change.

    Cheers—Peter Gow
