Program Overview

Our hypothesis

If we create conditions for teachers to partner with students in co-designing learning experiences, students will play an active role in transforming education.

Our approach

This 15-week experience pairs students with teachers who, as a team, co-design and implement learning experiences that are learner centered. Both students and teachers will receive a $1,000 award and undergraduate/graduate level credits.

  • Consulting Teams: A teacher and student from a Learner Centered School that supports and advises the teacher-student partnership
  • Advisory Groups: Small group of fellows, designed for deepening our learning and building critical relationships
  • Teacher-Student Partnership: A teacher-student pair charged with designing and implementing learner centered systems & experiences
  • Learning Community: Learn with other fellows and facilitators who are deeply committed to the group learning experience

Who is this fellowship designed for?

The student – One who craves for more out of their learning environment but has not been given the support or permission to advocate for themselves and others.

The teacher – One who is tired of traditional schooling and eager to do something different. Who also seeks to build stronger relationships with students and community.
