Measuring Personalizing Learning for Educators

Understanding the relationships between innovative professional learning offerings and learner outcomes

Overview

Lindsay Unified School District (LUSD) in central California is on a mission to ensure every student, or Lindsay learner, has a performance-based learning experience that allows them to succeed academically and personally. To achieve this vision, every learner must have the very best educator to support them on their journey.

In October 2017, LUSD received a federal Teacher and School Leader grant to design and implement professional learning strategies to improve educator recruitment, capacity, and retention. LUSD is seeking to cultivate the same mindset in educators that it spent the past decade fostering in its learners — that we are all learners — and therefore professional growth for teachers, whom LUSD calls learning facilitators, should be personalized and data-driven.

In 2018, LUSD partnered with The Learning Accelerator to use research science to understand the relationships between these innovative professional learning offerings and learner outcomes. Current research results are included and new results will be added through 2020, as we discover which strategies lead to long-term change in learning facilitator and learner experiences.
