The Designing and Leading Learning Systems course is part of the Leading Educational Innovation and Improvement MicroMasters Program from University of Michigan - MichiganX.
This course engages learners in exploring four leading logics of educational innovation: strategies and approaches to producing and using knowledge to improve educational practice and outcomes at scale, across many classrooms, schools, and systems.
Each of these logics has been used successfully in different types of classrooms, schools, and systems, though each also features traps and pitfalls that complicate universal usage.
To understand both their potential and their pitfalls, learners will apply these logics in analyzing exemplary cases of large-scale, practice-focused educational innovation in the US and abroad.
With deeper understandings of these logics, learners will be able to be strategic in designing and managing local innovation. They will also be able to identify external programs and projects that can serve as effective partners in innovation and improvement.
