Personalized learning is a student-centered approach where learning is tailored to each individual’s needs, preferences, strengths, interests, and aspirations. As a result, you are afforded more adaptable and flexible pathways for learning that extend beyond the boundaries of a traditional classroom or office. In this MOOC, you with collaborate with other educators and professionals as we explore what personalized or student-centered learning is, and what it is not. Additionally, you will be given the opportunity to design learning experiences to accomplish the shift towards personalization.
