What if teacher education programs were built upon the best research on learning and equity that is emerging in the knowledge base?

The Global Learning Equity Network aims to reinvent teacher education in the field of learning and the profound role teachers play in addressing issues of equity and student success.

Our cloud-based Learning Equity Research and Resource Centre will host current and leading resources in scholarly and applied research on learning equity in emerging knowledge bases such as:

  • psychology
  • neuroscience
  • cognitive science
  • technology
  • equity
  • education

Five new frameworks to drive the re-framing of teacher education

Our resource centre facilitates the evolution of international frameworks to guide teacher education toward learning education. Each of our frameworks provides the latest key research for that area, as well as examples of how this research has already been implemented in an educational context, and a library of related and engaging online content.

The frameworks themselves are based on a synthesis of the major domains in the field. They aim to guide teacher education programs around the world to recalibrate their current models in light of new evidence in the following areas:

Teacher education, and any attempts at educational reform, should be grounded on the premise that understanding the ways in which students learn, what motivates them to learn, and how teachers can best enhance this learning, is the core business of schools everywhere.
