Multiple Intelligences Foundation Unit – Lessons 1 – 4
MI applied to Teaching – Lessons 5 – 8
MI applied to School Management – Lesson 9
MI for Parents and a recap of the course – Lesson 10
Aim of course:
To enable teachers, especially those used to teaching in only a didactic way, to teach in more interactive and innovative ways, using methods that have been tried and tested and which will enrich the educational experiences of their students.
The Foundation Unit (lessons 1 to 4) needs to be completed before you can attempt the other lessons. After you have completed the Foundation Unit you may complete as many as you would like of lessons 5 to 10, but they build on each other so need to be studied in the order given. You may finish the course at any point, but a MAW Education ‘Certificate of Completion’ is only awarded to those who complete all ten lessons and questions satisfactorily.
