Transforming Learning Collaborative
The Transforming Learning Collaborative, founded by NGLC, Da Vinci Schools, and Schools That Can, and joined by additional leading districts and school networks (listed below), brings you two signature events for 2018-19.
Bring your passion and great ideas, then select your learning pathway. We'll provide the expert guides—educators leading at the edge of equity and innovation—who will deliver intensive, collaborative design sessions and coaching to help you create practical solutions. Solutions that have the power to transform learning in your school. It's a new approach to professional learning that will inspire, engage, and ignite your work.
Choose one of two options to fit your needs: a one-time design conference or a year-long incubator. Learn about these exciting new opportunities and complete the interest form today. We will contact you when registration is live.

Transforming Learning Conference
October 4-5, 2018 | El Segundo, CA
Join this hands-on, workshop-based learning experience, created by educators for educators and others interested in next gen learning design.
This is not a traditional sit-and-get conference. Our goal is to give you tools, guidance, and the time and space to dream, discover, and design your way to a new model of learning for your school. It is project-based. It is inquiry-based and passion-based. It is authentic, grounded in your real-world.
Join us for:
- Immersive, interactive investigations of some of the nation’s leading next gen learning schools
- Introductions to eight learning strands (see below)
Deep dives into Project-Based Learning, Mastery-Based Grading and more
Lightning Workshops on topics such as Engaging With Industry Partners, Restorative Justice, PBL in Elementary, 13th & 14th Year College Pathways, Building Student Culture, Supporting Alumni, College Preparatory Math, and more
Conference Registration: $575
One-Day Registration: $300
Group Registration: $495 per person for groups of 5 or more
Transforming Learning Incubator
October 2018 through June 2019
For school teams and individuals who are designing a new school or transforming an existing school, the Transforming Learning Incubator offers a year-long learning and design cohort supported by some of the most innovative schools in the country (see below).
Participants will build and test a prototype to transform an element of school design or an entirely new vision for a school. They will join a professional learning community, attend three face-to-face learning sessions, and benefit from customized virtual coaching and collaborative learning experiences throughout the year. The program kicks off at the Transforming Learning Conference in October 2018, held at Da Vinci Schools.
