Professional Learning Partnerships Initiative
In our Professional Learning Partnerships Initiative, we brought professional learning providers, curriculum developers, and school districts together in an effort to advance the effectiveness of professional learning (PL) services.
To achieve our goals, we invest in innovative curricular design approaches that seek to harness the potential of increasingly digital platforms, transparency of information about resource quality to districts and educators, and professional learning and technical assistance to support skilled use of instructional resources. Our investments in this area focus on the following areas:
Building an evidence base for high-quality instructional materials.
We believe that broad access to the best instructional resources is an equity imperative.
Improving support for instructional materials.
We can realize the potential of even the best instructional materials only if they are implemented with integrity in schools and classrooms.
Supporting and expanding equitable and instruction reflect and affirm diverse identities.
We invest in approaches to designing teaching and learning experiences that center on the assets and needs of priority students, but have the promise to benefit all students.
