Abstract

LEAP Innovations is a company that strives to make learning more personalized and tailored to the individual. To organize the ideal system of education, LEAP innovations has laid down a framework for their company creating 4 separate categories that contribute the the overall learning experience: Learner Led (student driven learning), Learner Connected (real world application), Learner Demonstrated (competency-based learning), and Learner Focused (passion driven learning). Annually, the framework forgoes a reconstruction to ensure it is relevant and comprehensible. Educators and learners from across the country gather to criticise and compliment the framework through various activities LEAP has organized. The project as an intern is to analyze the transcripts from the interactions between these influencers to find trends and report to LEAP innovations how and where they need to improve their company. To do this I created a template to organize key quotes from the transcripts into categories such as “needed clarity” and “examples of robust curriculum” to make is easier to find where LEAP needed to improve and where it was already sufficient. In addition to presenting my findings to the LEAP community, my work will also be used to create evidence memos for their business partners.
