Learning Design Cohort

A Learning Design Cohort takes you on an immersive, hands-on professional learning journey to collaboratively design and implement an inquiry and project-based learning experience for your students. These experiences feature a community partner to support authenticity, built-in scaffolding for you to make learning visible, and exhibitions of learning to provide purpose and audience for your students.

Design Accelerators are for projects that are already in motion, but need the time and support to consider the next steps and to hit the gas!
