Learning Designed

Equity and inclusion for all learners should be a primary focus across the globe. The world is changing at an increasing pace—where physical and digital boundaries are blurred—and continuous, life-long learning is critical. Educators facing this critical challenge have a much higher bar of success to reach in order to recognize the full diversity and variability of our population. The science is clear: There is no such thing as the “average” learner, and learning experiences must be designed for all learners.

Learning DesignedTM is a state-of-the-art online platform for professional learning, credentialing, and collaboration. It provides personalized experiences for educators within a robust community of support. Learning Designed harnesses the inclusive, evidence-based, UDL framework to help educators design for learner variability and improve learning outcomes. Learning Designed includes a growing list of global learning resources and field-developed micro-credentials so our education workforce (educators, education leaders, preservice educators, curriculum designers, and product developers) is prepared to support learner-centered design.
