Leading Learner-Centered Education

This two-day, team-based learning experience is designed to guide and support the successful scaling of learner-centered practices in a school or district while at the same time ensuring educational equity. Participants will reflect on their practice to build their shared context, define common language and shared meaning, and develop their “why”.  Teams will conduct a root cause analysis, resulting in a theory of action that includes success measures and strategies to empower learners. Teams can repeat the Leading Learner-Centered Education process and structure as they continue to implement and iterate on their plan. Two full day benchmark sessions with Institute staff are included in this workshop fee. 

Day One

  • Building Shared Context
  • Defining Shared Language
  • Developing Your “Why”

Day Two

  • District Reflection and Socratic Discussion
  • Root Cause Analysis
  • Theory of Action
  • Developing an Action Plan


This workshop is for teams of school and/or district leaders and should include decision-makers who have committed to moving learner-centered education forward. A minimum of 3-4 participants per team is recommended.
