Self-Paced Courses

Flexibly designed for personalized goal-setting and busy schedules

At Learner-Centered Collaborative we believe that learning is a process and not an event. We also believe that educators should experience the types of learning experiences that they are creating with their learners. This means professional learning for educators and leaders needs to be authentic, personalized, competency-based, inclusive and equitable.

Using these design principles, we’ve created a series of courses for educators and education leaders (K-12 classroom teachers, instructional coaches, principals, district leaders and more) that support the shift towards a learner-centered paradigm.

Courses are open! Explore and enroll below.

If you are interested in enrolling a group of 10 or more educators please let us know.

What to expect from our Courses

Our asynchronous online courses offer educators the opportunity to dive deep into learner-centered pedagogical practices and activities—on their own timeline, at their own pace.

Designed to connect new learning to current practices, each course consists of learning cycles that allow for practice within each module and are driven by self-assessment, reflection, and goal-setting. All courses culminate in protocols for synthesizing and reflecting on learning and for developing a portfolio of evidence of application.

What Participants Are Saying

This was one of the most productive asynchronous courses I’ve taken. It was a good mix of learning, examples, and taking action to help my class this week (or next). I want to review it again through the lens of adult learning to help me better shape professional learning for teachers at my school.
