Help design the future of learning and grow your next gen practice with these free, self-paced courses for educators. NGLC partnered with 2Revolutions to create three of the courses, focused on a Broader Definition of Success.


Design the Future of Learning

Educators can design their way to next gen learning with the free, self-paced, online courses in Learn Next: A Toolbox for Educators to Transform Practice.

NGLC and 2Revolutions partnered to create three Learn Next courses focused on a Broader Definition of Success. With these courses, you can enlist your school community to redefine student success and rethink learning through the lens of the NGLC MyWays Student Success Framework.

Broader Definition Of Success
  1. Understand the Changing World - Change is difficult and even frightening. Intertwined with the creation of something new is the loss or destruction of something old and familiar. However, the world in which our students live has changed fundamentally and rapidly. This change is not something we can reverse or even slow down, yet the way we think about teaching and learning has not kept pace. So it is time to ask ourselves: What are the real-world conditions today that our students will need to address.
    Estimated Time to Complete: 12-15 hours
  2. Success in a Changing World - When we think about the challenges our students will face, it is tempting to react with dread of the future or to simply hope and dream things will get better. Neither of these responses is empowering. Between the two lies “design,” a proactive, problem-solving approach to the challenges of a changing world. In this course, you have the opportunity and agency to design your response to these challenges and to work collaboratively to redefine what success looks like for the students you serve.
    Estimated Time to Complete: 15-20 hours
  3. Design Learning for a Changing World - To prepare students for a successful future, new designs for learning and new approaches to measuring what matters are essential. There is growing consensus for the kind of learning students need: experiences that address the whole person, that engage deeper understanding, that prepare learners to ask new questions and seek new types of answers, and that ultimately support learners in their self-development and their ability to continue learning throughout their lives. In this course you design (or redesign) a project or other powerful learning experience to support these broader competencies, including planning for authentic and varied assessments for learning. Through individual reflection and in collaboration with peers, students, and real-world partners, you have the opportunity to create a rich and memorable learning experience that embraces the full range of success competencies students need and deserve.
    Estimated Time to Complete: 15-20 hours
