Program Type: Learning Circle

Learning circles are social learning groups of college and university leaders who are pursuing transformative change. Campus leaders who are trained and supported by ACE facilitate ​​online meetings. Agendas are determined by members’ goals and challenges. Discussions draw from ACE and collaborator content. Following the structured program, participants have the option of continuing to meet using ACE technology.

​​​​​​​​Are you a senior leader who seeks to put institutional strategy and values into action every day through rapid, iterative improvement that is guided by a transformational vision of higher education? If so, join an Agile Administrators Learning Circle to connect with a trusted cohort of fellow innovators who seek to lead agile and human-centered innovation more powerfully on their campuses. 

With a trained peer facilitator, learning circle members will use concepts and examples from the ACE Agile Administrators program's multimedia curriculum to work through some of their toughest challenges and most compelling opportunities. In so doing, they will build their capacity to continue to collaborate and learn together. A subscription to the Agile Administrators program's self-paced curriculum is included with an Agile Administrators Learning Circle registration.​​

Sample Questions and Activities

  • Week 1: What does agile, human-centered innovation look like at our institutions now, and what do we hope for it to achieve in the future?
  • Week 2: Which aspirations, opportunities, and challenges do we want to take up together?
  • Week 3: We will review case clinics focused on design thinking, human-centered design, and lean start-up approaches.
  • Week 4: We will study case clinics focused on managing innovation from a portfolio perspective.
  • Week 5: We will explore case clinics focused on storytelling and narrative inquiry.
  • Week 6: What value have we gained, and where do we go from here?
