Pivot Learning’s Beyond High School Initiative is a collaborative design process that helps schools transform their learning environments to ensure students are engaging in deeper learning so that they have the opportunity to succeed in college and career. We believe that to create opportunities for deeper learning for students, we need to also create opportunities for deeper learning for adults. This belief got us questioning: What does deeper learning for (design) teams we work with look like?

This introduction to Pivot Learning’s Beyond High School Initiative's approach will provide participants with an understanding of how they can begin to integrate design thinking, growth culture and equity into their school culture and teams to design or redesign deeper learning environments for students and adults.
Our change design model leverages the design process that allows participants to identify core problems of practice from the user perspective and set parameters for solutions. Our emphasis on people and team development gives diverse teams the space to develop and test potential solutions, iteratively engaging stakeholders while also supporting them in growing as a deliberately developmental team i.e a team focused on adult development and equity. By employing a culture which embraces both growth and equity lenses when addressing root causes, studying the current context, understanding the user experience and suspending judgment to allow space for creative ideas and solutions, this design process goes beyond the “normal” design or inquiry cycles.

During the session, participants will learn about our change design process and will engage in a design cycle to address a dilemma around their (design) team to understand how to leverage the design process in conjunction with growth culture and an equity lens to build a deliberately developmental (design) team. As such, we strongly encourage participants to attend the workshop in teams.
