Virtual Learning Community



Virtual Learning Community cohorts are accessible to education leaders nationwide, and participants meet virtually via Zoom video conference. Each cohort session typically runs for 90 minutes and is held on a business day that works best for most participants.

EdFuel's Virtual Learning Community consists of a series of cohorts designed to convene small groups of education leaders to discuss challenges, share best practices, and develop the skills and mindsets needed to foster more equitable and inclusive working environments. Participants meet on an ongoing basis with one of our expert facilitators to share their experiences and raise problems of practice with peers to identify potential solutions.
