A CEDER staff member assists a student on a design project


CEDER researchers engage in “design thinking” activities and workshops to help develop educational resources, such as schools developing new learning materials or museums exploring the use of different kinds of technologies to support learning activities within exhibits.

Design Project Examples

CEDER partners with Center for Academic Innovation to develop new, free online course in computational thinking.
Under the direction of MAISA, CEDER leads the development of sets of instructional practices for literacy development, starting with a document for grades 6–12.
CEDER supports the College of Engineering Biothreat team's goal of using neural networks and machine learning to discover more effective antimicrobials by developing materials for and piloting a curriculum that introduces high school students to relevant science and technologies.
The SOE is debuting a course, developed in partnership with Teach Away, a provider of online professional development courses for teachers, to train educators in disciplinary literacy instructional practices.
