Advancing Student Led Learning: A Starter Guide

version 2.0 | 1.23.20, revised 3/9/21

This resource was developed collaboratively through a panel discussion and subsequent working session devoted to exploring ways to put students at the center and support them in their learning journeys and the co-creation of that learning. Through guided discussion, the co-facilitators and participants of this session  drafted this resource to help institutional leadership, faculty, staff, and students take action and support flexible learning and student leadership in their contexts, with particular attention to access and equity. This resource was created prior to the COVID-19 pandemic.

This resource begins with case studies from three institutions: Conestoga College, Western Governors University, and Full Sail University.
