Personalized learning is gaining momentum across the nation, which means the role of teachers and skillsets they need is evolving. To address this need, the Council of Chief State School Officers and Jobs for the Future, in collaboration with the Institute for Personalized Learning and other partners, came together to develop the Educator Competencies for Personalized, Learner-Centered Teaching, which outlines the unique competencies educators need in order to create and thrive in effective personalized learning environments. Join us for a deep-dive into the Educator Competencies and discussion on the implications for practitioners.
