Professional Learning


Learner variability is the recognition that each student has a unique set of strengths and challenges across a whole child framework that are interconnected and vary according to context. It embraces both students’ struggles and strengths. In concept and practice, learner variability opens up the doors to cultural responsive and strength-based, inclusive teaching and learning for each student. Learn more about the research behind learner variability by reading our white paper, Learner Variability is the Rule, Not the Exception.

Our professional learning aims to empower educators and leaders with an understanding of what learner variability is and how to design for it in their classrooms using four guiding principles.

  • Design inclusive environments that foster belonging
  • Design for the whole learner
  • Design with the science of learning in mind
  • Design for student agency
