The Breakthrough Models Academy consists of three program components:
1) Face-to-Face Program, July 13–18, 2014 | Cambridge, MA
Each day's exploration during the Academy face-to-face event will be driven by key topics—new models across today's higher education landscape, service blueprinting, learner relationship management, evidence of impact, and the emerging public policy environment. During the day and after hours, the academy experience is anchored by active learning and participant dialogue with experts in the field and each other. And, over the course of the week, participants will placed into teams in preparation for the design challenge.
2) Project Team Collaboration, Summer & Fall 2014 | Online
Following the week in Cambridge, assigned teams will make arrangements to continue work on their designs through ongoing collaboration and mentoring from academy leaders.
