And an item from the neo-liberals to round out the day.

Web Version
We’re looking ahead to our Aurora Institute Symposium 2022 and 2023, and we want you to help shape our planning efforts.
Take Survey
The switch to a virtual Symposium has required open minds and flexibility – and we are grateful to everyone who supported us this year and last. But we miss seeing you and are hopeful that we can gather together in-person in coming years. We also want to be mindful of health concerns and uncertainties with travel bans. So we created a survey to understand the factors that might influence your ability to come to an in-person Aurora Institute Symposium in 2022 and 2023.

Please help us by taking our survey by November 10!

Agency by Design: Making Learning Engaging

Download Report
The Aurora Institute published a new report, Agency by Design: Making Learning Engaging.

In our response to the myriad challenges the global COVID-19 pandemic has posed, addressing the need for greater student agency and student engagement must now be a key focus of leaders and educators.

This report offers guidance – including practical advice – to education leaders and teachers reimagining education by centering on learner agency, shifting the ownership of learning, and student engagement.

Authors Derek Wenmoth, Marsha Jones and Joseph DiMartino provide clarity around the definition and meaning of learner agency and address the implications for high-quality practices in new learning models.

The report is available for download at https://aurora-institute.org/resource/agency-by-design-making-learning-engaging/.
