Partnerships

A group of faculty and staff collaborators working in partnership.

Collaboration is at our core

Our partnerships with K-12 school districts are focused on supporting the pedagogical shifts in learning and teaching with powerful integration of technology using research as a tool to illuminate what works. We work with executive leadership teams, school leaders, teachers, and district staff to design and implement systems and structures for competency-based professional learning.  Our goal is to equip educators with the knowledge, skills and dispositions to create optimal learning experiences for all students. Informed by research and refined by practice, we partner with school districts to fuel K-12 innovation. Click the image on the right to check out a video showcasing one of our many partnerships.


Our Approach

The IEE is comprised of experienced researchers and educational leaders who are dedicated to helping schools effectively integrate technology in K-12 settings. We utilize a variety of research methods to meet the needs of the communities and stakeholders with whom we work. Our goal is to help schools and districts make evidence-based decisions that transform educational environments and improve student learning. The IEE deliberately integrates research with thoughtful consulting to help accelerate effective innovations in learning and to rethink the systems in which learning occurs. Developed by IEE researchers and professional learning experts, check out of a few of the IEE-generated tools we use throughout our collaborations with district partners.

In partnership with districts, the IEE supports and empowers educators to redesign learning for a changing world.  Grounded in the contextual factors and needs of the communities and stakeholders with whom we work with, the model below represents our process for fostering a culture of learning and innovation.
