Contact:Linda Pittengerlindap@ccsso.org502-542-1305

Next Generation Learning Challenges (NGLC) is a new effort to identify and scale technology-enabled approaches that dramatically improve college readiness and completion. With funding from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, the initiative will be led by EDUCAUSE, in partnership with the League for Innovation in the Community Colleges, the International Association for K-12 Online Learning (iNACOL), and CCSSO. NGLC will provide grant funding, build evidence, and develop an active community committed to addressing how learning technologies can scale to overcome persistent educational challenges.

CCSSO invites you to participate in a "Back to Campus" series of webinars focusing on the underlying challenges in college readiness and completion and the role of technology as an enabler of change. The webinar series will provide background discussions on topics relevant to the upcoming Next Generation Learning Challenges grant program, so interested parties may get different perspectives framing these important issues in learning technologies that span across K-20.
