Learning frameworks are the blueprints for change.

Learning frameworks can help us build a strong foundation for credentials that can recognize learning beyond high school regardless of where it happens. Several things are required to develop and use these frameworks, including: training for faculty members, sufficient time and resources to create learning opportunities, effective assessment tools to evaluate learning, and new competency-based records that allow students to move seamlessly among many different “houses” of learning.
