As of September 11, 2020, the name of our organization has changed to: “The Collaborative for Customized Learning” At our annual Board retreat, our Board of Directors unanimously voted to change our organization’s name to better describe our purpose and membership. Our current members include schools and individuals from across multiple states, all committed to our vision for Mass Customized Learning.
Additionally, charter changes were made to clarify the language our members are using as well as our purpose: “The Collaborative for Customized Learning is a collaboration of schools, organizations, and individuals committed to supporting the development and change of the school structures and processes necessary to provide the ideal learning experience for every learner.”
New hires/learning facilitators and administrator to the profession, or new to designing and implementing a standards-based approach, are encouraged to join us for this webinar series. We will start by evaluating participant’s biggest challenges and answer their urgent questions. Participants will determine the focus for future sessions and veteran teachers/learning facilitators will join us to talk about how they address these challenges in their classrooms.

“Swimming in the Deep End: Four Foundational Skills for Leading Successful School Initiatives”
By Jennifer Abrams
May 23rd & June 13th 2019 @ 3 p.m. Register Here
In an effort to build our skills at communicating the details of the transformational changes we are making in our learning communities, we are hosting a discussion about Jennifer Abrams’ book, “Swimming in the Deep End, Four Foundational Skills for Leading Successful School Initiatives”.
Teachers, learning facilitators, building level and district level leaders, consultants, etc. are all invited to join us for live, online discussions about how Abrams’ messages apply to the challenges we have experienced while communicating the details of our vision.
Participants are responsible for purchasing their own copy of the book which is available through Amazon.com and doing some reading before attending each of our two live sessions. Our two live book talk sessions will be held on May 23rd and June 13th at 3 p.m. EST. Each session will be 90 minutes long.
As a benefit of their MCCL membership, participants from MCCL member schools will receive a certain number of free seats to this book talk. See your district/school leaders for access to those free seats. We welcome non-MCCL members to join us for a minimal cost of $35/seat.
In the Fall of 2019, all our book talk participants will be offered a reduced rate to two webinars with our author, Jennifer Abrams, on September 18th and October 1st, 2019.
