Professional Learning and Leading Collaborative

The Professional Learning and Leading Collaborative (PLLC) knows that dedicated and well-prepared educators and administrators are key to the success of any initiative within a school. We engage educators and education stakeholders across the PreK-16 education system to develop, share, and research innovative models and approaches that support the whole student. We build capacity, grow leadership, facilitate strategic planning and research, and coach educators to implement personalized and blended teaching and learning to meet the needs of all students. We design with the student in mind.

Our work is driven by a vision to help each student reach their potential. We do this by: 

  • Creating personalized and blended learning environments designed to focus on the ‘whole student’, recognizing inequities and diverse needs have to be addressed;
  • Developing ongoing, job-embedded professional learning opportunities for educators and administrators to support the development of personalized and blended learning environments that support all roles;
  • Building networks of schools and districts in which they can, through continuous improvement, learn and collaborate together; and,
  • Facilitating one-of-a-kind professional learning experiences customized to meet educators’ individual and organizational needs.
