Teachers as Designers

Innovative Teaching and Learning occurs when teachers embrace their roles as designers of powerful learning experiences that foster equity and prepare students for a changing world.  

The following services are designed to push thinking and inspire meaningful change. We seek to create learning environments where teachers effectively leverage technology and draw upon pedagogical practices (i.e project based learning and design thinking) that support students to be productive learners, workers, and citizens.

Designing for Learning

In this 5-day workshop series, we work with a select cohort of classroom teachers from around San Diego County to build their capacity to design innovative, research-based learning experiences that foster the competencies students need to thrive in a rapidly changing world. To change how students learn, we must change how teachers learn.  Thus, in this series, we engage teachers in personal and authentic learning, creation of content for an authentic audience, critical thinking, communication and collaboration.
