What does it take to get the most
from a learning experience?

Bookended Learning

Imagine spending a day with authors and experts on a particular topic, not to pique your interest in a topic or review what you already know, but to deepen your understanding in ways that makes a difference in your day-to-day practice. Imagine professional learning where your access to those experts was not the beginning nor at the ending of your learning but the center of your experience; flanked by opportunities to explore and inquire into that topic’s importance to you and your students, and followed by support for application and transfer into your practice.

Learning Forward Colorado has been exploring such ideas in the development of "bookended learning opportunities". To learn more about this concept – go to Bookended Learning on our Events page.

Greetings from

Welcome to Learning Forward Colorado (LFC)! We are an adaptive, current, and responsive professional learning organization dedicated to supporting educator effectiveness, implementing the Colorado Academic Standards, and improving student learning through effective professional learning.

We strive to influence all educators who are involved in providing professional learning opportunities to adhere to the Learning Forward Standards for Professional Learning. Meeting these standards empowers educators at the school, district, and state levels to develop collaborative communities engaged in continuous cycles of improving teaching, leading and learning. Further, we endeavor to honor educators and celebrate their passion for engaging in effective professional learning every day so every student achieves.

We hope you will participate with us on our ongoing educational journey by becoming an involved Learning Forward Colorado member.
