This section provides the learner with an inviting and engaging introduction to the topic of your mini-course, specifies the target learner, and gives an overview of how this course works. The importance of the topic may be demonstrated through problem scenarios, storytelling, case analysis, statistics, etc.
 
  
Feel free to name and organize this section (and other sections) in a way that is most effective for your mini-course. For example, designers from the past sometimes set this section into two parts: Instruction, Course Overview (How This Course Works).

When creating these new activities, strategies and approaches a teacher needs to keep in mind that all students are different. They think differently, act differently and learn differently. Therefore, it is important to Differentiate materials for all learners. WAIT A MINUTE! What does Differentiate mean? How can I differentiate my instruction? You have come to the right place! In this mini course, you will find all the answers to those two question and more!!
