The Learning Design Process


Four key elements of Deep Learning design enable teachers and students to design learning experiences that are:

  • mapped to student strengths and needs
  • create new knowledge using authentic, relevant problem solving
  • help students identify their talents, purpose, and passion.

The four elements work in concert to create the most powerful deep learning experiences.
