We can all agree that “the system” behind K-16 education does not serve the needs of students, teachers, communities, commanding officers or employers. Sadly, academic systems were designed to support inequity & compliance, not lifelong learning. This is extremely problematic for those of us trying to navigate a VUCA world (one that is Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous). And by those of us, we mean all of us.
But while many publishers, university academics, and EdTech companies have introduced online courses, planning templates and platforms they claim are “solutions,” they fall short in real educational settings because they do not remove the barriers to successful teaching and learning. They are sexy without substance, esoteric without practicality, or lack foundations in the sciences of learning and development (SoLD).
For over 21 years, EduChange has done the difficult design work required to re-engineer “the system.” EduChange has the rare ability to bridge research and practice, to work with diverse groups of people at different career stages, to set desirable goals and then attain them, and to achieve measurable results. And unlike most consultants, we have built complete solutions from scratch.
We focus on secondary, post-graduate, and adult education levels. We have particular expertise in some of the most complex areas for educators to address, including: STEM (science, technology, engineering, math), competency-based assessment, authentic disciplinary literacy, and equitable multi-year program designs.
Our team is comprised of senior-level experts, each with 15+ years of experience. Collectively we cover all major subject areas, and are uniquely positioned to provide content and training on multiple digital and traditional platforms. Over 98% of all EduChange clients are serial collaborators, effectively shaping a professional learning community that is dedicated to growth and grounded in mutual respect.
