Teaching for Multiple Intelligences

Course Description:

Howard Gardner's Theory of Multiple Intelligences (MI) acknowledges that people have strengths in different modalities. It suggests that children's varying intelligences can not be recognized or accessed in traditional classroom settings, where the focus remains primarily on students' analytical abilities. The MI approach supports the idea that children can and will reach their full potential in their particular area(s) of intelligence. This course will help you explore how to use MI Theory in your teaching practice. As a final project for this course, you will create a lesson plan or a plan of action using the theory of Multiple Intelligences.

Note: This is a facilitated course. Learners submit coursework and participate in asynchronous discussions throughout the course term, and receive graded feedback.
