Learning by Scientific Design: Instructional Modules Overview

At DFI, we believe knowing how to teach begins with understanding how people learn. But too often, teachers begin their careers without this knowledge, and that has implications for the learning opportunities afforded to the generations of students they will serve. Our work is grounded in a belief that teachers can create challenging, affirming, and equitable learning experiences that enable all students to thrive if they have a firm understanding of the science of learning.

Over the past few decades, research in the fields of learning and development has shed new light on how young people learn. And yet, that research hasn’t been accessible to many teachers. Through our Learning by Scientific Design Network we have worked in partnership with teacher-educators across the country to change that reality. These instructional modules from our network translate learning science research into instructional practice, providing practice-based, actionable learning opportunities for teachers and those that prepare them.
