Overview

Education systems around the world face the central challenge of finding innovative solutions and techniques for improving student performance. 

This challenge is shared by teachers, teacher-leaders, and principals who are responsible for improving opportunities to learn, with two goals: raising average levels of student performance and reducing achievement gaps between students.

Beyond schools, leaders in district offices, government agencies, professional associations, and other non-governmental enterprises also share the challenge of improving student performance at scale across entire schools, districts, and systems.

Developed in collaboration with the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching - and drawing on the expertise of leading researchers, innovators, and practitioners - the Leading Educational Innovation and Improvement MicroMasters Program offered by the University of Michigan - MichiganX  from University of Michigan will empower learners to collaborate and strengthen educational opportunities and outcomes for millions of students, especially those currently underserved by their public schools.
