NICERC works with its partners to design and redesign its programs so that they incorporate project-driven, application-based learning that engages students across primary, secondary, and post-secondary grade levels. Each design initiative undergoes a rigorous, iterative process including phases of research, development, evaluation, improvement, and implementation.
Our programs provide hands-on, context-based approaches to professional development, empowering teachers to prepare students to become the leaders of tomorrow. Prior to implementing any NICERC curricula, teachers attend an immersive professional development workshop. These workshops are led by a team of education leaders and subject matter experts and are designed in a way that fully engage teachers and prepares them for a successful implementation of the curriculum in their classroom.
