Deeper Learning Research Series

Increasingly, policymakers are engaged in important debates and decisions that will determine our effectiveness in increasing educational and economic opportunity and productivity for all learners. In fall 2013, Students at the Center launched a second aligned and integrated effort to coalesce and make accessible the evidence base on effective learning strategies and deeper learning outcomes. This undertaking is particularly geared towards building knowledge in formats that policymakers can draw upon to keep deeper learning outcomes front and center as they engage in the real-time debates and decisions that will determine the effectiveness of our schools in creating a highly competent and productive workforce and engaged citizens for the 21st century.
