Research shows that traditional stand and deliver workshops are ineffective at changing instructional practices.  Teachers find it difficult to translate theoretical models into classroom practice. For that reason, AIM PATHWAYScourses are designed to follow a Learn, Practice and Apply cycle.

  • Participants acquire knowledge through hundreds of learning tools including articles, teacher classroom videos, animations and videos of experts in the field.
  • Participants will practice with specially-designed interactive activities and downloadable resources to help them translate their new knowledge into instructional practice.
  • Participants demonstrate understanding of the content by applying their new knowledge to real life classroom scenarios via multi-step student case studies.
  • All Pathways participants receive virtual coaching sessions with AIM facilitators to support knowledge acquisition and classroom implementation.
