Teaching for Deeper Learning: Tools to Engage Students in Meaning Making: ASCD Virtual Author Workshop

October 24, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm EDT

What Will You Learn?

Join bestselling ASCD authors Jay McTighe and Harvey F. Silver as they discuss ideas from their book, Teaching for Deeper Learning: Tools to Engage Students in Meaning Making. Deep learning occurs when learners are actively engaged in making meaning of content. When students have learned something deeply, they retain information, achieve conceptual understanding, and can transfer their learning to new situations. However, deep learning doesn’t occur on its own as a result of didactic teaching; rather, it requires the active mental manipulation of content using higher-order thinking skills.

During this two-part webinar series, McTighe and Silver will explore a set of important questions:

  • What is deeper learning and why is it important?
  • How does deep learning occur?
  • What’s worth learning deeply?
  • How should curriculum be framed to promote deeper learning?
  • What kinds of instruction will help students learn deeply?

The authors will also present a set of practical and proven instructional tools and strategies to help students make meaning, build deep understanding and transfer their learning from school into the world beyond.
