We appreciate your time and thoughtful feedback in advance to move the field of K-12 competency education to the next generation of ideas and actionable outcomes. To join a TAG, you must have at least one year of experience in the field of competency education.
As a TAG member, we will share a draft document with you and ask you to share your insights at some point during a one-week virtual session using google docs. A team of writers will be responding in real time to your insights. We hope you will be able to check back to the google doc several times throughout the week as ideas develop. There will be a phone call or webinar on the first day to launch each of the TAGs. The schedule for the TAG sessions are listed below:
1. Designing for Equity: January 30 – February 3, 2017: This TAG will help develop an equity framework for personalized learning including issues of tempo, pace, depth of learning, trajectories to graduation, and effort.
2. Developing Policy for the Long-Term: February 6-10, 2017: This TAG will identify the types of supportive policies that build capacity for educators, school leaders and districts; autonomy; next generation accountability models; and continuous improvement models for school performance.
3. Meeting Students Where They Are: February 27 – March 3, 2017 (to be managed by reDesign): This TAG will address the difficulties for districts and schools to move beyond teaching on (age-based) grade levels regardless of where students are in their learning continuums.
4. The Systems and Structures Necessary for Quality Implementation: April 3-7, 2017: This TAG will identify the specific policies, structures and practices needed to ensure high-quality implementation of K-12 personalized, competency-based education.
