Shifting educator practice

Our professional learning offerings—for individual educators, small cohorts or large groups— are grounded in experience, facilitated by expert educators, and developed in response to timeless concerns and current needs. The norms that we espouse as essential to learning experiences - building trust and knowing students deeply, challenging all students, and developing equitable and inclusive learning experiences that support all students - are essential tenets in our commitment to shifting educator practice.

Our mission

We design and deliver programming that empowers teachers and school leaders to shift their practice to improve student learning outcomes.

  • I real­ly think GOA is a mod­el — not just for dis­tance learn­ing, but the pos­si­bil­i­ties of how we might rethink school in mov­ing forward.” Aaron Alcodray American School of Japan
  • We need our teach­ers to be part of the con­ver­sa­tion that a part­ner­ship with GOA offers orga­ni­za­tions with such a clear focus on what teacher learn­ing means for stu­dent outcomes.” Benjamin Gregg Walnut Hill School for the Arts (MA)
  • You have to invest in pro­fes­sion­al learn­ing to get mean­ing­ful out­comes, and some­times that means bring­ing in out­side experts. GOA pro­vid­ed the part­ner­ship we were look­ing for, and they did a tremen­dous job — so much so that we part­nered with them again.” Samuel Mormando Garnet Valley School District (PA)
