"It has been wonderful to see where other schools are with their journey and learn from their successes and struggles."
"There is so much room for growth. It is exciting!"
~ Comments from ISC participants
The Institute Studies Cohort (ISC) provides intentional collaboration among groups that are working to design a learner centered environment based on personalized learning practices for their classroom, school or district. Cohorts will work as a community of practitioners across districts to formulate ideas, share best practices and network with each other.
This is a great opportunity to launch personalized learning examples without too much face-to-face time or financial commitment. The cohort includes six directed sessions over an extended period and is open to any interested district, particularly districts or teams that:
- Are just getting started or trying to re-engage or re-energize their efforts
- Are looking to see personalized learning practices in action
- Have a small team in a school but do not have infrastructure support throughout the district to implement personalized learning
- Want continuing support over an extended period to make element connections and develop a plan for implementation
Successful implementation of personalized learning has always involved a team working together in conjunction with a supportive administrator. As such, participants are encouraged to be part of a team; we strongly encourage one member of the team to be an administrator.
