Earn a UbD Certificate!

Have you completed Levels 1 and 2 of UbD with Dr Susan Clayton? If you complete Level 3 as well and submit all the necessary assignments, you can earn a UbD certificate from Singapore ASCD. Your assignments must meet the requirements set by Dr Clayton.

Please note that if you have completed your UbD Level 1 a year ago, do consider doing a refresher course for Level 1 before proceeding to Level 2. This will make it easier for you to complete the Level 2 assignments. Please write to our Secretariat or check our schedule for Level 1 courses.

When you sign up for UbD Level 2, you'll get a FREE copy of Jay Mctighe's latest 2011 book Understanding by Design Guide to Creating High Quality Units.
