What Our Programs Achieve

Excellence: closing the gap between teaching and learning
__

Decades of scientific research reveal the principles of human learning that impact academic performance. Unfortunately, research also suggests that training on the Science of Learning is uncommon. This is because the departments of education that train teachers are decoupled from the departments of cognitive science that specialize in understanding how humans learn. We close this gap by synthesizing and translating research on human learning into application-ready programs that are science- and evidence-based. This enhances excellence in teaching and learning.

Equity: best "in class" resources for everyone in your class
__

Through research, we know that learning is a science that must be taught and when we fail to do so, students rely on the least effective strategies to learn. This may be magnified for low-income students who do not have the resources to obtain specialized support outside of the classroom. Equity is achieved when every single student, regardless of socio-economic status, is taught to learn effectively. Their success in school and life is dependent on their ability to learn.

Diversity: individualizing instruction for diverse learners
__

Learning is a cognitive process, and cognition is malleable. Each student has a unique cognitive profile that is affected by their emotions, behaviors, and life experiences. Educators must be trained to identify differences in cognition, emotion, and behavior; individualize instruction for diverse learners, and while equip students with evidence-based learning strategies

Wellbeing: tools for a whole child approach
__

Our brains are changing constantly and shaped by our life experiences, which in turn affect our ability to learn. Therefore, while learning is a cognitive process, it is interconnected with our emotions and behaviors. To enable the success of our learners and educators, we must develop a keen understanding of how adversity can affect us and equip our educators with tools that foster the emotions, relationships, and behaviors essential to learning.
