Learning and Leadership Institutes

At the outset of this Professional Learning partnership, ALP and Dell EMC partnered with the Michigan Department of Education and REMC to facilitate a wide range of customized, pedagogy-focused training sessions across the State. Initially focused on assisting educators as they unpacked the Next Generation Assessment targets aligned to Common Core State Standards, these regional and site-based institutes and seminars evolved to engage educators and administrators in best practices associated with technology integration, personalized, blended and inquiry-based learning as well as scale leadership development around navigating cultural change. In 2014, these daylong seminars were integrated into an extensive virtual and job-embedded coaching model.

Learner-Centered Experience Design

Career exploration at the secondary level is a critical component of college and career readiness. In partnership with educators and students in Northwest Community Schools, ALP developed a trimester course that incorporates elements of STEM and current and emerging technologies to further enhance 21st century skills of research, information fluency, communication, collaboration, critical and creative thinking. Two ALP coaches facilitated job-embedded (push in) professional learning for lead teachers to support refinement of the authentic learning experiences for other teachers to implement in future years.
