Teaching, Curriculum & Teacher Development

Teaching is both a technical and effective profession in which teachers need to not only provide cognitive and socio-emotional support to diverse groups of students, but also teachers themselves need to be supported within the larger school and policy structures. Evidence-based research can help develop teaching and teacher training curricula and design professional development models that support teachers to become agents of change in their classrooms.

Cross-Cultural Training, Diversity & Inclusion

Today more than ever, educational policymakers and practitioners need to recognize and appreciate the cultural diversity of the people they work with. Trainees will be equipped with knowledge and skills that allow them to promote culturally relevant curriculum and pedagogy, ad to challenge their own unconscious biases within school and classroom settings. This includes addressing issues of gender, race, ethnicity and cognitive and socio-emotional needs.
