... trust and respect students and are willing to
shift control of their learning to them. These educators want to see growth in others and strive to foster
their own self-growth.
They can handle change and are willing to innovate and experiment. Because assessment is the best way to improve performance,
they enjoy it, seek it, and practice it.

A New Look!
Welcome to the new Academy website. While the old site put in a lot of good years, it was time for a real update. We expect things to work smoothly
(we've tested it pretty rigorously!), but just in case the dust hasn't cleared completely yet, we do appreciate your patience.
Don't you just love that new website smell??
Workshop: Learning Process Methodology: The Great Equalizer
We invite all Academy members to register for the
Learning Process Methodology: The Great
to be facilitated by Matt Watts on March 27. This workshop is FREE
for Academy members!
The Learning Process Methodology provides a powerful and
universal model for the learning process and lies at the heart
of Process Education theory. Since the goal of instructional
design is to guide someone through the learning process, the LPM
is inherently tied to the design of learning activities. Classic
and contemporary studies of Learning and Instructional design
have developed their own corresponding models, most of which are
subsets of the LPM. Finding connections between their models and
ours opens an essential dialogue between Process Educators and
other schools of thought.
Process Education integrates many different educational theories, processes, and tools in emphasizing the continuous development of learning skills through the use of assessment principles in order to produce learner self-development.
