Concept-Based Curriculum is taking off!

Concept-Based Curriculum and Instruction is quickly gaining momentum around the world as schools recognize the value of this approach to develop students' thinking skills and prepare them to transfer learning to the diverse and novel contexts of modern society.


But too many educators are struggling...


There are so many misconceptions out there that are leaving teachers confused about how to transform practice and unlock the power of a Concept-Based approach.


All too often people are reading a couple of chapters of a book and then going out there to lead a workshop on material that they don’t really understand themselves.


There is a very real risk that without a global network of leaders who deeply understand Concept-Based learning the incredible power of this approach will be abandoned before it is ever fully realized in schools around the world.


We have seen that pendulum swing in education before where something great gets thrown out before teachers have had the opportunity to unlock its potential.

It is the students who will lose out if we abandon the potential of a concept-based curriculum and revert back to the traditional drill and kill of facts and skills.


And, it is the students who miss out when teachers rob them of the opportunity to do the thinking and realize the potential of learning transfer.


But, the scariest thing is…


Everyone's future is at stake if this generation of students are not prepared to think critically, see opportunities, solve problems, and face the challenges of the new world we live in.


The time is now!


We have to build a movement of educators who are able to lead the way, untangling all of those misconceptions and confidently providing clarity for educators who see the potential of a Concept-Based approach but, need a pathway to move forward.

As a CBCI Certified Trainer, you support teachers and schools in understanding and implementing the Concept-Based approach to transform the quality of education they can offer to students.

The Erickson and Lanning CBCI Trainer Certification is a nine-month online program designed to:

• Develop a deep understanding of Concept-Based Curriculum and Instruction so that you are able to fluently and confidently explain the principles to others.


​• Provide you with practice crafting clear generalizations, or conceptual understandings, so you can confidently lead curriculum design.


• Create opportunities to coach others to write generalizations beyond your area of expertise so you can support both the high school math teachers AND the kindergarten team.


• Build your understanding so you can help teachers fix common curriculum design errors and can cut through the frustration.


• Allow you to participate in a series of Concept-Based lessons so you can experience the power of organizing ideas to see patterns and make connections.


• Deconstruct lessons so that you can design your own learning experiences that empower students to think conceptually.


• Provide you with a bank of resources to create a coherent and logical presentation suited to the needs of your particular audience.


​•Create opportunities to learn from highly experienced trainers who have field-tested CBCI presentations, so you have a structure and logical sequence and your audiences are able to comfortably process the flow of ideas.

The Online Format

Three years ago we said that the Erickson and Lanning CBCI trainer certification Institute would never be offered online.


To be honest, we simply could not imagine how we could take an 8-day face-to-face training and replicate the quality of that experience in an online format.


Then the global pandemic forced us to rethink what was possible and we spent several months working to redesign the program.


That is when new possibilities emerged...


We added new components to the training that were simply not an option in the old 8-day format.


We realized that working with educators over the course of 9-months allows you to spend time implementing your learning before coming back to us with questions.


The extended learning time provides rich opportunities for you to share your success and your challenges and learn from each other through ongoing collaboration.


This online format has also made it possible for educators to attend who may not have been able to travel for an extended period, broadening the global community.


Having discovered how powerful it is to work with educators over an extended period we simply can't go back to the 8-day format. In the future, we may offer a blended approach with online and face-to-face but we have no plans to return to the 8-days alone.

Leadership of the Erickson and Lanning

CBCI Trainer Certification Institute...

Dr. Lynn Erickson and Dr. Lois Lanning

Dr. Lynn Erickson and Dr. Lois Lanning have helped educators across the globe learn the tenets of Concept-Based Curriculum and Instruction (CBCI) for decades.


Having written numerous books (individually and together) and offered professional development workshops and training courses over many years, their work has made a significant and enduring mark on international education.


As a Curriculum Director, Lynn initially worked in a school district to change the curriculum model. She wrote her first book in 1995 based on her work there and titled ‘Stirring the Head, Heart, and Soul: Redefining Curriculum and Instruction’. In this book, she developed the Structure of Knowledge Model to show the relationships among facts, concepts, generalizations, principles, and theories.


Lynn was joined in 1996 by Lois Lanning and a strong ongoing partnership was formed. Lois developed the Structure of Process to complement Lynn's model.


Together they created the Erickson and Lanning CBCI Trainer Certification Institute to develop a network of trainers who could provide leadership and coaching to the growing number of schools adopting this approach.


Lynn and Lois are now retired and have passed the leadership of the Certification Institute to Rachel French and Tiffanee Brown, with a team of five additional subject area specialists to deliver a highly engaging learning experience.


This means you will have seven trainers working alongside you for a full school year of learning to develop the depth of understanding and presentation skills necessary to successfully lead Concept-Based Curriculum and Instruction training and implementation.

Meet the Team

As a CBCI certified trainer, you can choose your direction.

Most Certified Erickson and Lanning Trainers choose to lead curriculum design and implementation within their own school or organization.


Many IBEN trainers also use this training to lead International Baccalaureate workshops.


Yet others become independent education consultants.


This approach is a powerful approach K-12 and beyond and you may choose to establish your own niche within your discipline or area of special interest.

Rasha's response to:

What will you personally do with your certification? How will you use it in your career?

PROGRAM CURRICULUM BREAKDOWN

The CBCI trainer certification is taught in four separate, consecutive courses that focus on different aspects of the Concept-Based approach and how to guide teachers in applying it to different disciplines. During each of these courses, you will gain access to new self-paced video modules each week.

Course 1: Concept-Based Curriculum and Instruction for the Thinking Classroom

Through a series of video modules, Dr. Lynn Erikson and Dr. Lois Lanning will guide you through the unit design process. This course provides the foundation for building conceptual understanding - you will learn how to design curriculum to use these structures to focus teaching and learning and significantly improve the academic performance of all students.

Course 2: A Closer Look at Process

Take a deep dive into the process side of Concept-Based Curriculum and Instruction as you develop your understanding of strategies and skills in both knowledge and process-based disciplines. During this course you will design your own skills based lesson plan (in a subject and grade level of your choice) and get individual feedback from Tiffanee Brown.

Course 3: Coach, Collaborate or Consult

Taught live through our weekly Zoom calls, this course provides you with the opportunity to build your skills as a coach or consultant in providing feedback to your peers on the actual units that they have designed. You will work in small groups to refine your units and practice your coaching skills.

Course 4: Leading CBCI Workshops

Build your skills and confidence as a trainer through this self-paced course. View footage from real workshops and our video trainers’ guides as you navigate each of the modules in Dr. Erickson and Dr. Lanning's Signature Workshop in preparation to lead this workshop yourself. You will maintain lifetime access to this course so you can revisit the modules each time you are preparing to present.

Weekly Group Calls over Zoom

In addition to the four online courses, you will also have 10 virtual lessons with our subject specialist team over the course of the year.


You will practice spotting errors in generalizations and learn the types of questions and scaffolding used to support teachers in more clearly articulating their thinking and in crafting stronger generalizations.


You will enter each subject specialist’s virtual classroom as a student and participate in a Concept-Based lesson to experience first-hand what it’s like to build conceptual understanding through an inductive process.


Assessment

There are four key components to becoming an Erickson and Lanning Concept-Based Curriculum and Instruction certified trainer:


1) You must complete all of the online modules and course assignments and participate in 80% or more of the group coaching calls.


2) Then you will complete an online written assessment to demonstrate that you know and understand the key components of Concept-Based Curriculum and Instruction.


3) You will then present two modules from a Concept-Based Curriculum and Instruction workshop in a 20-minute performance assessment. This is your opportunity to demonstrate your command of the content and that you have the skills necessary to clearly articulate key messages with confidence. This presentation will take place via Zoom.


4) Finally, you will design your own Concept-Based unit and teach at least one of the lessons from your unit. We will ask you to submit a unit plan, a lesson plan, and a video of classroom practice. We will meet with you on a final coaching call to give you feedback on this lesson.


**The assessments are rigorous, but don't worry! We provide substantial support to make sure everyone is well prepared. You will have an opportunity to resubmit any of the components once, if necessary.
