Educator Competencies for Personalized, Learner-Centered Environments

This 2020 edition of Educator Competencies for Personalized, Learner-Centered Environments, created in partnership with the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO), is designed to serve as a customizable tool to guide educator development.
The intent is to enable a growing number of teachers to implement and scale up a transformation of their classrooms into places of personalized, student-centered learning. However, the Educator Competencies are aspirational; no single superhuman teacher can perform all the practices and exhibit all the behaviors continually. While individual educators may find the document useful, any significant implementation will need to take place within a broader learning community.

The new edition of Educator Competencies features:

  • A refreshed text with a focus on equity
  • A focus on teaching strategies that embrace these forces of change
  • Examples of the Educator Competencies being used around the country
