Our curriculum leaders are working during #RamsSummerAcademy with their teams to design their UbD units in @Eduplanet21 after learning from the UbD Institute in Eduplanet21 by @jaymctighe

Concepts and Design Principles in Organising a Curriculum Review https://buff.ly/35lO6Ka Grant Wiggins and @jaymctighe place great emphasis on “Transfer”. The concept of “Transfer” is based on the idea that knowledge, concepts and skills are transferable between subject domains.

Sorry, if this is your view, you do not understand Understanding by Design! UbD always starts with the learning goals, THEN considers needed assessment evidence for those goals, and THEN focuses on the optimal learning plan. See this paper for more info. https://tinyurl.com/k5pn9az5
