Professional Learning

SRSN organizes Innovation Zones to support the work of moving to a competency-based learning (CBL) system. The Innovation Zones provide a space where public school educators, partners and stakeholders engage in high quality professional learning. That learning is used locally to support school improvement efforts, and statewide to inform system design. When possible we provide an archive of these sessions available to the public.


These recordings of virtual sessions are available to the public.

Monthly PL Sessions for All Zones

All three of the SRSN Innovation Zones come together the second Wednesday of each month to engage in using a personalized competency-based mindset to support learning design. A key feature of these sessions centers around assessment for learning and reimagining a state-wide assessment/accountability system. Participants engage with national and state experts, and share insights about their own practices.

Many of the videos and resources provided are excellent tools for building and district leaders striving to create quality professional learning experiences.
