June 2016 News: Successful Train-the-Trainer Event Held

Over 60 invited district leaders and educators gathered in Franklin on June 6 – 10 to participate in the SPDG Train-the-Trainer professional development event, designed to prepare SPDG Facilitators and their supervisors to implement SPDG activities in their districts.  From Monday’s introductions through Friday’s good-byes, excitement ran high each day as the SPDG Facilitators participated in hands-on activities designed to strengthen and support their knowledge and skills regarding Universal Design and Differentiated Instruction

Participants learned to use rubrics and other tools to assess their own and other’s progress toward creating classroom environments that employ principles of Universal Design and Differentiation. Facilitators learned how to present a consistent message and an engaging training to their district colleagues on these topics while supervisors learned how to support them and their districts in these efforts. On Friday, participants showed off their skills by conducting a mini-session for their fellow SPDG facilitators.  Participants left tired but happy, loaded with materials, knowledge and skills to share back home.
