Learning Differences Overview

Every student and every person learns differently — yet our education systems are structured to approach every student similarly. Learning differences refers to the many ways (or constructs) in which individuals' learning needs vary. Rather than look at these differences as weaknesses, understanding and leveraging each individual student's learning differences can help teachers meet their needs. The following micro-credentials are designed to provide you with support as you target individual students.

Submissions and re-submissions to these micro-credentials will be accepted until September 15, 2019.
