What is the role of teachers and students in modern learning?

Through an interactive two week online course, participants will explore shifts in learning that place students at the center of their own learning.

The course will consider implications around the use of technology to support students as they learn at their own pace and beyond traditional school walls. Participants will evaluate the role that school design plays at their schools as they seek to create, establish, and sustain modern learners.

In Week 1 of the Modern Learning Lab, we will explore examples of modern learning classrooms from around the world, showcasing teaching and learning practices that foster student agency. Participants will share how their own schools are creating modern learning experiences for students and faculty.

In Week 2, participants will build a modern learning experience that is relevant and meaningful to their own practice. All participants will receive GOA’s Modern Learning Lab Toolkit. The Toolkit contains tools and resources to support you in the design of student and teacher experiences that promote modern learning design.

The course will be facilitated by GOA staff or learning design coaches, experts in instructional design, student-led learning, and professional growth. This course is primarily asynchronous, with one optional, recorded synchronous activity. The course is two weeks long and we estimate about two hours of work per week. This course is for classroom teachers designing student experiences and faculty leaders designing collaborative experiences for adults.
