  • That learners receive regular, timely, and purposeful feedback (critique) that supports meaningful reflection and revision that leads to mastery.
  • Learning goals that lead to the transfer of key knowledge and skills to new situations with different contexts.
  • Learning experiences that are authentic – they offer relevant contexts.
  • Instructional design that fosters sustained inquiry and leverages learner curiosity.
  • A growth mindset that values risk-taking and perceives failure as a challenge that can be overcome with effort.
  • Experiences that empower all learners with voice and choice to pursue their passions and own their learning.
  • Learning goals that focus not only on content, but also on the 21st century skills of communication, collaboration, creativity, and critical thinking.
  • Experiences that support the social and emotional development of all learners.
