It's time to implement

REP4 takes its cue from learners. Because conceptual ideas are developed through a dynamic process to identify solutions for wide-ranging equity issues, REP4 partners are deliberate in reflection and action.

Provocations and thematic outcomes expressed through learner pitches point to opportunities to be carried forward for student success and lasting change. Taken together with anticipated impact on learner experience, network effects and scalability, portfolio projects are activated.

This is a shared, iterative and evolving portfolio, strengthened alongside learner advisors, with an open invitation for collaboration and learning.
