- Where We Work
The developing world faces a massive and growing shortage of quality teachers, while many administrators are not well prepared to be instructional leaders.
EDC delivers effective, hands-on training and support to large numbers of teachers and administrators; recently, we trained half a million teachers in a single year. Our professional development programs are intensive, ongoing, connected to practice, and sustainably embedded within our partners’ education systems. We use various technologies to reach difficult-to-reach places, improve cost effectiveness, and provide more constant support than is practical using conventional means.
We empower head teachers, supervisors, and inspectors to serve as mentors who encourage teachers to apply newly learned techniques. We help teachers change their classroom practice to support deeper, more active learning. Our documented results demonstrate that EDC-trained educators outperform their peers and move steadily upwards on scales of outstanding practice.
