Filled with 24 learning designs, the latest edition of Learning Forward’s bestseller helps educators understand the kinds of learning experiences that result in changed practices and better results for students. The book is edited by Lois Brown Easton with chapters authored by more than 30 of the field’s leading experts in adult learning, including Eagle Rock staff members Michael Soguero, Dan Condon and former Eagle Rock Fellow Colin Packard.
Context-setting chapters help educators explore the idea of meaningful learning designs and the importance of considering system factors in professional learning.
The broad range of designs allows educators to find the best strategies for their particular needs and circumstances. Each chapter includes a narrative about the design in use, an overview and rationale, concrete steps for implementation, alternatives, and challenges and how to address them.
Fifteen of the 24 designs in this version are all new. The others have been updated, many incorporating aspects of technology. The 384-page book includes a link and password to dozens of exclusive online resources.
