Each learner works directly with his or her mentor to develop and execute an individualized learning relevant to his or her current professional context. These reflections and discussions inform what skills and scholarly products would be of most value to the learner now and in his or her continuing career. The personalized learning plan represents a way in which learners can select resources, strategies, and a timeline for demonstrating competencies. The principles that underlying the practice of developing and accomplishing that plan keep the learner in the center of the learning process, promotes autonomy in accomplishing professional goals, and anticipates flexibility in the learning plan as new opportunities become available.
View an example of an individualized learning plan in progress. To graduate, a learner must have a minimum of 32 credits that map to each competency at least two times and address a range of entrustable professional activities.
