What Happened on the L2C Blog in 2016?
Thank you for being part of a community that believes in the power of education to promote change in society!
The Learn to Change (L2C) blog is one way in which we try to support and inspire educators like you. On it we regularly share valuable resources to re-think how learning happens in groups, classes, work teams, institutions and organisations.
