Learning Dimensions’ first clients consisted of a diverse group of non-for-profit organizations interested in making an impact in education through inquiry-based, academically rigorous, thought provoking, and service-oriented learning experiences for students. A major challenge, however, was that these organizations did not have the expertise and resources required to assist teachers with creating transformative learning experiences within their classrooms.
With this understanding, Monica Swope, the founder and principal curriculum specialist for Learning Dimensions, decided to create an educational consultant company that would give those interested in making an impact in the lives of young people greater access to develop innovative learning environments for students and professional development opportunities for teachers. Therefore, the primary goals for Learning Dimensions are to support clients in designing instructional tools and materials (i.e., as curriculum frameworks, unit plans, lesson plans, learning guides, and student resources) and creating professional development options (e.g., professional development models, plans, and training options in the areas of adult education, disciplinary literacy, and Common Core State Standards).
Services provided by Learning Dimensions, such as strategic educational planning, innovative curriculum solutions, and professional development options, puts the type of resources and experiences needed to create and implement transformative learning experiences in the hands of clients. The services that clients can expect from Learning Dimensions can best be described in the following statement:
