This series of three workshops has been designed to build on the original concepts of The Depth and Complexity Model. Participants will be provided with opportunities to apply and integrate the set of prompts with other pedagogical strategies. We will discuss how the prompts of depth and complexity can be integrated into curriculum elements such as Thinking Like a Disciplinarian, Independent Study, and the art of questioning. Each workshop session will define a new pedagogical strategy and will demonstrate how the prompts of depth and complexity can be integrated into this strategy as the means of creating varied access points to the content. This series will focus on how the use of many and varied curricular opportunities can act as a form of differentiation to meet the needs, interests, and abilities of all learners.
