General Resources

Contemporary Learning Watering Hole

We encourage you to join the Contemporary Learning Watering Hole. This is a Facebook group for Lutheran Educators group where we can share learnings, gain support, and celebrate the culture of Contemporary Learning Transformation. With now over 1000 contributing educators (the majority from Lutheran Schools) connecting, it has become a rich resource for collaboration and inspiration. As you progress through tour Contemporary Learning journey, we encourage you to share thoughts and learnings from your own settings as well as from other parts of the world.

Contemporary Learning Framework

We are pleased to share the Contemporary Learning Framework – Core Elements of a Contemporary School . Your tour experience will help you unpack this framework, and provide you with the tools you need to consider Contemporary Learning at your school. We provide continued, tailored support as you return to your school and implement the framework.
