Faculty and Research

The Alder Graduate School of Education equips aspiring teachers with the knowledge, skills, and habits of mind to become excellent teachers focused on educational equity.

We strive for continuous improvement, evolving our teacher education program by synthesizing research and data that transform aspiring teachers into exceptional ones.

Researchers and faculty at Alder Graduate School of Education undertake investigations of issues relevant to the preparation of teachers in order to contribute to policy, practice, and public dialogue on education.

Faculty and researchers pursue a diverse range of studies, including those in the domains of teacher education, cognitive science, educational technology, educational policy, and school leadership.

Our investigations engage us deeply in partnership with both the education research and practice communities, including K–12 organizations, higher education institutions, and education nonprofits.

At Alder, we engage in public scholarship, marrying theory and practice for the public good.
