​​​​​​Designing Credentials for Innovative School Models
The twin goals of equity and efficacy require K-12 school models that are personalized, skill-based, and interdisciplinary, but traditional transcripts are ill-suited to capture the richness of these approaches. How can we design transcripts and records that empower learners to share their unique strengths, abilities, and goals? In this panel discussion, Aurora President and CEO Susan Patrick will join Mike Flanagan of Mastery Transcript Consortium, Andrea Purcell of Big Picture Learning, and Mary Ryerse of XQ Institute to share insights and lessons from their credential design efforts.

CompetencyWorks Personalized, Competency-Based Education Meet-Up
Join us to connect with Aurora’s network in the field of student-centered learning and K-12 personalized, competency-based education. We’ll explore how communities of innovative practice are fundamentally rethinking education through learner-centered, competency-based pathways and personalized learning. Discuss the latest trends and issues in competency-based education and share connections in your own work, network, and brainstorm about how to advance this vision for the future of education.
