Center for Innovative Education
The Center for Innovative Education was established to strengthen and advance Hampshire’s model of quality, student-centered education for learners--kindergarten through college. The Center initiates projects, supports existing programs and fosters the development of new initiatives that challenge traditional assumptions concerning the nature of teaching and learning. It supports a vision of educators as individuals who find joy in learning; who challenge conventional political and ideological assumptions about educational outcomes; who engage students in genuine inquiry: who teach outside prevailing disciplinary boundaries; and who assume responsibility for promoting the agency of their students. The CIE promotes research, experimentation and assessment at all levels of instruction.
