As a top-tier college of education at a Research I university, Arizona State University’s Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College is bringing its research capabilities to bear on the work of the Next Education Workforce.
ASU’s Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College works with schools in multiple school districts to implement Next Education Workforce models. While the specific shape of these models varies according to those schools’ particular needs, the defining characteristic of Next Education Workforce models is how they bring together teams of educators with distributed expertise in order to deepen and personalize learning for students. They also seek to empower educators by developing new opportunities for role-based specialization and advancement.
Now, with its K–12 school partners, Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College has developed a research agenda in order to generate evidence-based knowledge about the relationships between Next Education Workforce models and outcomes for both learners and educators.
