Educator competencies for personalized, learner-centered teaching

//Educator competencies for personalized, learner-centered teaching

The Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) and Jobs for the Future (JFF) publish Leadership Competencies for Learner-Centered, Personalized Education, a resource that serves as a first step in identifying the knowledge, skills, and dispositions leaders must master in order to build and sustain learner-centered, personalized schools and learning environments. This set of competencies describes and defines what leaders need to know and be able to do in order to create transformative, student centered-learning communities. Learner-centered refers to four specific practices that together show strong evidence of success in preparing students for college, careers and civic life:

  • Personalized learning
  • Competency-based education
  • Anytime/anywhere learning opportunities
  • Student ownership

“CCSSO believes that by investing in leaders, states will improve outcomes for each and every student,” said CCSSO Executive Director Chris Minnich. “This tool helps states understand the skills and qualities they need to cultivate in leaders to create dynamic, learner-centered communities.”
