Every year since 2010, the iSTEP Institute and Stanford University have welcomed teams of teacher educators based in universities and in K-12 schools from all over the world.
The primary purpose of the iSTEP Institute is to bring together these teams so that:
They have the time, focus, and resources to share their understanding of the principles of consequential teacher education based on their personal experience and their own group discussions, the readings and resources provided, and discussions with Stanford University faculty.
They have the opportunity to closely examine a robust program.
They may plan enhancements for their own programs in the company of colleagues.
