Institute Syllabus
Session 6
Designing a Comprehensive System of Learning Supports and Strategically Planning its Implementation

Key topics explored:
  • Developing a prototype design document for a comprehensive system of learning supports
  • Initial strategic and action planning for transformation
  • Institute concluding comments
Discussion, follow-up, and reading for next session

Reflect and Discuss:
  • What are your ideas for creating the readiness and commitment of your stakeholders for moving forward in developing a comprehensive system of learning supports?
Act:
  • Use this time to begin formulating next steps for moving forward in developing a comprehensive system of learning supports. The first next step is to plan how to continue planning after the institute ends (what needs to be done, how, by whom, and when); the second step is to make certain key stakeholders understand the need and commit to making essential changes.
