Educator Competencies for Personalized, Learner-Centered Environments - 2020 Edition

In 2015, the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) and the Students at the Center initiative at Jobs for the Future released the first-ever set of comprehensive competencies for teaching in personalized, learner-centered settings. The co-leaders were joined by a group of core partners, all focused on the future of education and ensuring access and success in educational achievement for every student: National Center for Innovation in Education at the University of Kentucky, Institute for Personalized Learning at CESA#1 in Wisconsin and the Nellie Mae Education Foundation.

Together, the partners scanned research on teaching and learning, cross-walked over a dozen teaching standards and professional development frameworks and vetted the text through numerous iterations with over 100 state, district, school and other education leaders. For the current revision, the Students at the Center team, now at KnowledgeWorks, and CCSSO ran new field scans and conducted focus groups and interviews, adding more than 60 new, diverse voices to the process. In addition, this “refresh” effort documented evidence of the Educator Competencies in use at state, district, network, and school levels.
