LEARNING CONSORTIUM II & WORK PLAN
OUR CHARGE: to develop a work plan that leads to the piloting of one to three online courses amongst participating schools by Fall 2018.
OUR WORK TO GET THERE: At our final session last year, four groups presented next steps for the Learning Consortium, including for particular courses. The work fell under the following headings:
MISSION AND VISION – Each of the summer 2017 work groups developed a potential mission statement for the consortium. The mission statement that received preference reads as follows:
The Quaker Schools Learning Consortium will broaden the scope of individual school offerings by uniting Quaker schools around the world which will raise the national visibility of Friends schools.
PROTOTYPING AND ORGANIZING THE CONSORTIUM – Each of our four groups either considered the logistics of moving forward as a consortium (decision-making, teacher training, certification of courses, etc) or developed plans for potential course offerings for students or teachers (a social entrepreneurship class and an online extension of Educators New to Quakerism).
