EdX is an online learning platform trusted by over 12 million users offering the Designing and Leading Learning Systems Program in collaboration with University of Michigan - MichiganX. Learn leading strategies for educational innovation to improve practice, raise student performance, and reduce achievement gaps.

Overview

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. 

These logics include:

  • Shell enterprises
  • Diffusion enterprises
  • Incubation enterprises
  • Evolutionary enterprises

What you'll learn:

  • To think and reason about innovation as producing, using, and refining practical knowledge in schools and systems.
  • To evaluate the alignment between innovation strategies and local contexts.
  • To coordinate innovation strategies with goals for ambitious teaching and learning.

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.
