Limited Capacity seats available

In this session, participants will learn together about the power of cross-district collaborations when districts/states/partnerships intentionally develop a Learning Plan to guide meaningful learning around identified problems of practice. We will share strategies to develop and nurture networks and integrate Graduate Portraits into the learning experience for student-centered outcomes respective to the participant’s context. Participants will collaborate to develop a draft Collaborative Learning Plan that identifies and builds on “collective expertise” and is meaningful to each learner/district. Participants will consider how networked learning could lead to transformational change through “local” inquiry cycles that are meaningful and manageable.
