Our mission

Helping to make conscious choices.

Promoting powerful education by increasing expertise and empowering teaching teams to make informed choices in curriculum design, assessment, and teaching methods.

Our vision

Design-based learning:
together, actively engaged.

We believe that powerful education emerges from working towards a collective ambition to create a robust curriculum, consisting of clear goals, meaningful assessment, and effective teaching methods. Key focus areas for us include viewing learning as a continuous process, fostering ownership, and providing personalized learning experiences. This is cultivated through design-based learning: as a team, collaborating on a shared language and practice by actively developing education together, based on thoughtful choices. This is achieved by enriching teachers’ knowledge and skills through scientific research and related, enjoyable, practical examples. There is no one-size-fits-all solution for this: we prioritize collaborating to organize support that fits the context. We inspire innovation!

HOW can we help?

Tailor-made guidance.

Need more help? We offer support on various topics and in various ways. For instance, we can act as a critical friend during the development of a new assessment program, provide training on formative assessment or learning strategies, provide guidance in vision development or the formulation of learning outcomes, or take on the role of project leader for a complete curriculum revision, from vision to implementation.

Sustainable innovation succeeds only when reality is at the forefront and people are engaged. Our expertise lies in providing innovation processes where we collectively focus on impactful and sustainable change. We’d love to work with you to understand your desires, grasp the daily realities, and figure out how we can contribute to your ambition: bridging the gap between research and practice.

For this reason, we offer customized support tailored to your needs. We’re eager to meet and explore how we can assist you.
