Michigan Virtual University (MVU) has teamed with a private partner to update 60 courses for its LearnPort program. The school has selected Knowledge Delivery Systems (KDS) to ready the courses, which are designed primarily to help Michigan K-12 educators improve their teaching skills and earn required state continuing education certification. Among course subjects to be covered will be those that address the needs of diverse learners, blended learning and data-driven decision-making. New courses being offered include “The Flipped Classroom: Personalizing Learning for Students Every Day,” “Shifting Instruction With the Five Core Practices” and “Courageous Conversations about Race.” MVU President and CEO Jamey Fitzpatrick said, “As standards continue to evolve, it is crucial that we also equip educators with the tools and resources they need so that they can make a real difference in the classroom.”
