Today’s classrooms serve students and families of great diversity. So it is essential that teachers develop self-awareness and knowledge with regard to the complex influences of culture, language, and life experiences and explore the nature of diversity in today’s society and in today’s schools.

The courses in this certificate program offer teachers opportunities to explore current theories, research, and effective practices related to student diversity. Teachers study ways to meet student needs through models such as the Universal Design by Learning (UDL) and Differentiated Instruction (DI) as well as how to integrate technology to customize instruction. Teachers also have hands-on experiences in building a repertoire of research-based strategies for diverse learning environments. The goal of the certificate is for teachers to develop an approach that is appropriate for their students.
