|During the past 3 days you’ve been busy connecting and expanding your professional learning network (PLN). Today, we're increasing the value of this network.
“The COETAIL Program is designed to give participants multiple opportunities to learn and reflect on their teaching practices as they go through the courses. The feedback participants receive from the learning community is rich in ideas, suggestions and encouragement. This process is called Mastery Learning, and was shown in a paper by Bloom to increase student performance by about one standard deviation over more traditional forms of instruction and assessment.”
Mastery Learning is one of the key pedagogical foundations that COETAIL is built on. Each COETAILer keeps a blog throughout the 5 courses to share and reflect. This transparency and feedback from instructors & the COETAIL community ensures that we are always learning and growing with sharing at our center.
