Course Description

All of us carry explicit or implicit theories of learning. They manifest themselves in the ways we learn, the ways we teach, and the ways we think about leadership and learning.

In Leaders of Learning, you will identify and develop your personal theory of learning, and explore how it fits into the shifting landscape of learning. This isn’t just about schools, it’s about the broader and bigger world of learning.

The education sector is undergoing great transformation, and in the coming decades will continue to change. How we learn, what we learn, where we learn, and why we learn; all these questions will be reexamined. In Leaders of Learning we will explore learning, leadership, organizational structure, and physical design.


HarvardX requires individuals who enroll in its courses on edX to abide by the terms of the edX honor code. HarvardX will take appropriate corrective action in response to violations of the ed...

Very useful, very enjoyable, more than wonderful experience. Gave me an overview of the subject of learning leadership. The course is connected to the field of learning and comes from within learning . I have heard great leaders from the field of learning talking about their experiences in learning leadership. Content is rich in the latest science. The sequence of information is very good and related With real-world websites. Self-learning is very wonderful, especially when cooperating with the best university. The fact was that it was fun to ask you to work and write reports or discuss your opinion. But I came out of this course with valuable information And a higher level of understanding, also adopted a new approach to my view of the subject of the course. I thank everyone for this outstanding work. And wait for the second level of this course. I highly recommend it.

I really enjoyed this course. Dr Elmore was easy to follow and to understand. The use of videos from the "Experts" further enhanced the course by allowing my the opportunity to hear different viewpoints. The content was relevant and helpful. I know more than what I did before I started and with the help of Dr Elmore, I can adequately articulate my personal theory of learning. I think this course is a must for any current or would-be-leaders who want to make positive change

Excellent training with inspiring instructors and rich content. Very well constructed and very interactive courses. A good experience for those who want to know the different theories of learning and their concrete implications. Excellent also when you want to clarify your own position in a changing world. Thank you to Professor Richard Elmore and others. Edx also offers high quality interface and support.

Professor Gregory R. Anrig of Educational Leadership at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, made an astonishing and wonderful job by offering the "Welcome to Leaders of Learning" course. The material provided here, doesn't focus only on essential & needed tools for future Leaders but also the opposite side for ongoing learners like me, by understanding "the best way of learning available and the best accessible environment for gaining more in knowledge, expertise and skills". The fascinating side of this course is the extensive materials provided by Professor Gregory R. Anrig, help me to understand the wide potentials of his study; that it can be not limited on schools or universities, but also implemented on companies and work-environment structure for gaining more in performance, goals and results.

Fantastic Professor. Very rich content and wonderful articulation.Pursuing the course is inherently motivating. I'm so deeply engaged and might be that was the reason I lost a few grades. Am I over attentive? How do I know that my progress is promising to earn certificate?

It's a real honor to be driven as graduate and noble teacher, a true connoisseur of the subject like few others.

I was initially testing the waters when one video later, I find myself digging into the course materials enthusiastically. This course is very good and highly recommendable for school leaders, teachers, aspiring teachers, and everyone in the education sector. So far, it is the most engaging course from the Harvard GSE (I hope they would offer more of these in the future, especially now that the education system is in dire need of paradigm shifting forces to save itself from the brink of oblivion). Although I am from the Philippines, (our education system is patterned mostly from the US education system, so the difference is very minimal), the newfangled ideas set forth by this course are extremely helpful and applicable for teachers in developing countries like me. The challenge posted by this course for educators profoundly resonated and encouraged me to act. So in conclusion, I would like to request Harvardx GSEx to offer more cour...

Leaders of Learning v1 course of Aug 2014 was thought-provoking, awe-inspiring and life-enhancing, in the league of EduTech, Happiness Science, Journ for Change. I thought of starting up my own school after I had mastered it faster than the speed of thought. V2 could be the way to making it happen. I was honored with a final grade of 98%.
