Introduction to ACE Learning 2.0 - April 27, 2023 (ECIS Leadership Conference)

Training for Schools | International Education

In Fall 2022, NEASC launched ACE Learning 2.0, a refreshed version of the transformational ACE Learning Principles. All schools preparing for their second round with ACE as well as new schools to NEASC will be using the ACE Learning 2.0 protocol.
