The Collaboratory for Teacher Education at the University of Pennsylvania’s Graduate School of Education

The Collaboratory for Teacher Education at Penn GSE is a laboratory for the design, implementation, and study of experimental approaches to teacher education.

Guided by our commitments to diversity and equity, developing core practices, and the power of inquiry in teacher development, we collaborate with educators, schools, districts, and researchers to create opportunities for teacher and teacher educator development.

The Collaboratory is home to several teacher education programs at Penn GSE, which provide multiple pathways to excellence in teaching. It is also a growing hub of resources for teachers, teacher educators, and teacher education researchers.
