Learning Pathways

Back To Research

The Learning Pathways Program is an inquiry and design-based research project that seeks to inform how learning experiences can be designed and linked in ways that facilitate young people’s journeys towards understanding who they are, who they want to be, and who they can become. The goal of the Learning Pathways Program is to provide insights and methods for making pathways to future possibilities more transparent and tangible for youth. Our work involves several components, including:

  • Development of a research-based conceptual framework for learning pathways
  • Documentation of youth’s interest-based learning journeys
  • Action research on youth passion and identity with our Youth Advisory Board
  • Cross-organization collaboration to develop content-based learning pathways based on the framework
  • Development of resources and tools for practitioners to use in program design and delivery

Mission

Our mission is to provide insights and methods for making pathways to future possibilities more transparent and tangible for youth.

Vision

As adults become more intentional about how we design and connect learning experiences for youth, we create avenues for youth to explore their interests, strengths, and talents with increasing agency around discovering and building pathways to expanded opportunities and passion-filled futures.
