    Whether in a conference workshop or in a classroom-based setting, attendees are frequently faced with the challenge of extracting meaningful personal learning experiences from content that may exceed or be below their skills and prior knowledge. In addition, methods for customizing learning for different learning preferences, will be demonstrated in an interactive manner. This session is designed to provide attendees with a variety of tools and strategies to overcome these challenges, so that no one leaves their workshop or class feeling either shortchanged or overwhelmed.

    1. Learn how to increase or decrease the level of difficulty of sample exercises.

    2. Gain strategies on how to prepare activities that are challenging but still accessible and well-suited to your skill level.

    3. Create content, and learn how to modify existing content, that addresses your learning preferences, and most importantly, sticks with you long after the end of the class or workshop.

    Step-by-step examples of how to use and apply said tools will be demonstrated and discussed. 

    Learning Objectives

    1. Use Bloom's Taxonomy as a guide to establishing clear learning objectives that target specific skills and levels of proficiency.

    2. Adapt new and existing lesson plans and training material in order to create learner-centered experiences that work for you.

    3. Learn how to utilize tools for creating rubrics and include technology in your self-improvement plan.
