  • Access to learning experiences designed by teachers

Imaginal Institute’s philosophy is to have a consistent model and culture of professional learning and development for all stakeholders. The foundational layer of Ownership in the Profound Learning model is achieved by empowering the learner, whether it be a teacher or a student, to own and take responsibility for their learning. Leaders and teachers within the Imaginal Institute are provided with powerful tools for self assessment in order to identify and close gaps in professional practice.

Professional Development

Closing Gaps in Professional Practice.

The Geenius LTS, when used in the context of professional development, will deliver Profound Learning training and track individual teacher growth and development. In order to support a healthy professional growth environment, a culture of respect, support, soft landings and freedom from fear and judgment must be in place. Just as a smart student is defined as one who can identify and close gaps in their learning, a Profound Learning teacher is constantly trying to elevate their practice by identifying and closing gaps in their practice. The goal in professional development goes beyond learning new concepts to implementing new practices.  Teachers will be able to self assess their practice using a Profound Learning Practice Map (similar to Learning Maps used by students) to close the gaps in their learning.

District and Regional Professional Practice Maps.

Each local and regional jurisdiction can create customized Professional Practice maps that align to regional professional requirements.
