Envisioning the Graduate of the Future

This course was developed by MIT with support from the XQ Institute, to help school communities rethink what a high school graduate will need to know and be able to do. The course will explore how to design a graduate profile, the artifact that communicates these ideas. Making explicit the capabilities, knowledge, and attitudes graduates need and including stakeholders, like students and community members, in the process; can help schools build their vision of success and drive innovation efforts.

This is a free course through the EdX platform online and is appropriate for teachers, administrators, community members, and anyone interested in improving secondary schools. Participants will learn:

  • What a graduate profile is and the benefits of creating one
  • How a graduate profile design process can engage a community in reflecting on and communicating the purpose of secondary school and establishing a cohesive vision
  • Process and tools for designing a graduate profile that reflects the values of multiple stakeholders
  • How a graduate profile can guide continuous school improvement
