Experience NGLC Events

Our immersive learning experiences are just as 'next gen' as the learning you'll find in NGLC schools. These hands-on, learner-driven events connect you with leaders in next gen learning design as you build and sustain your own designs and approaches for next gen learning.

Opportunities include ongoing support following individual events and participation in virtual communities of practice. These opportunities provide much-appreciated support as you apply your learning and continue to test and refine your designs in your school or community.

Join our mailing list to receive information about upcoming events.


Ongoing Events

Transforming Learning Incubator
October 2018 to June 2019 | Various locations & Online

From the Transforming Learning Collaborative (founded by NGLC, Da Vinci Schools, and Schools That Can), this year-long educator-to-educator professional learning experience is for individuals and teams who want to go deep into the design process, guided by leading expert-practitioners. Participants join a small learning community, attend three face-to-face learning sessions, and benefit from virtual mentoring and collaborative learning experiences throughout the year. The program kicked off at the Transforming Learning Conference in October 2018.


Past Events


Transforming Learning Conference
October 4-5, 2018 | Da Vinci Schools, El Segundo CA

Educators and others interested in next gen learning design were invited to this workshop-inspired learning experience, designed by educators. This was the signature event of the new Transforming Learning Collaborative founded by NGLC, Da Vinci Schools, and Schools That Can. The event included deep dives into project-based learning, mastery-based grading, real world learning, whole student development, and other aspects of Whole School Transformation and Learning Redesign.

Networks for learning Convening
May 21-23, 2018 | Pittsburgh PA

What role does network design play in shaping future learning shifts for equity?

This unique learning experience, co-designed with Stanford K12 Lab, included site visits to area schools and highlighted NGLC’s co-host, the Remake Learning network. The learning experience was facilitated by nationally-recognized network leaders and designers from New Tech Network, Promise 54, CommunityShare, and the Interaction Institute for Social Change. They helped guide and shape participant dialogue, design sessions, and our collective network thinking.


Learning Excursions

NGLC has organized these site-based learning events for several years. Learning excursions are not your typical site visit observation. They are opportunities to visit schools that are bold pioneers in whole-school next gen learning in order to examine practice, connect with innovators—teachers, school leaders, and students—and explore ways to bring inspiring new ideas to their schools. Participants take a pause from their daily lives and become learners themselves. 


Mass IDEAS School Design Institutes

As part of NGLC's newest initiative, Mass IDEAS: Innovating Design in Education for All Students, the School Design Institutes support school teams based in Massachusetts who are ready to roll up their sleeves and rethink schools. During each institute, teams create innovative, 21st century solutions to problems affecting student learning. Participants learn school design skills and receive coaching, feedback, and the support they need to help continue the next steps of your design work back home.
