Welcome

Education transforms individuals and societies, preparing them for new thinking and new action. These transformations happen every day—in contexts ranging from schools to workplaces to communities and via formats ranging from small face-to-face seminars to massive open online courses. Regardless of context or format, the work of teaching and learning is incredibly complex, shaped by psychological, cultural, political, and economic factors.

Helping students and others to understand these factors—to see education from the inside out and outside in—is what Cornell education researchers and practitioners do. We connect students, as well as colleagues on and off campus, with research-based knowledge and rich educational programming (e.g., fieldwork in courses and professional development for teachers). In so doing, we join and enlarge the community of people rethinking education and ensuring more and better transformations.
