A #CREATEequity Public Draft

At CREATE, we've been forging a model for leveraging a university to create K20 Local Opportunities to Learn (LOTL). In this short #CREATEequity Public Draft, we propose that every university can and should be a place where faculty, students and staff help create necessary local opportunities to learn as a basic part of their work; that each university should pay highly skilled staff researchers and practitioners to shepherd such opportunity creation, just as universities pay staff for other essential functions; and that funders can ask and support universities to proactively engage in this work. We invite an ongoing dialogue with colleagues across the country committed similarly to creating local opportunities to learn, so collectively we can better leverage universities for the public good.
