About Us

Heidi Hayes Jacobs and Allison Zmuda have been collaborating and imagining ideas together for two decades in the development of compelling curriculum where students have a meaningful role in their own learning.  Over the years, we have deepened our work into reimagining the power and role of personalized learning and the need for modernizing school formats as evidenced in Allison’s books on personalized learning and Heidi’s work has focused on the design of school learning environments and essential literacies for the contemporary learner.
We are  committed to creating dialogue and sharing resources to support school and system leaders that are the stewards of program structures, policies, resources,  and pedagogy.
On a personal note, our decision to develop this website is a direct response to requests we received from members of the education community that emerged after we posted our blog on Curriculum Triage.   In addition, for the past year the two of us have been researching and developing concepts and material for a book we had hoped to publish on new directions in phenomena-based learning.  Little did we know that we would all be catapulted into the phenomena of a global health crisis. Onward.
