National Center for Innovation in Education

Published: Feb 18, 2013

This month, we made an important announcement in the life of the University of Kentucky, the College of Education, and UK’s ongoing effort to improve K-12 education across the Commonwealth.

 

For many years, we’ve prepared educators in classrooms across Kentucky with the tools and techniques to educate the next generation of scholars.
 

Through the P20 Innovation Lab, we’ve expanded that work. We are engaged with teachers and administrators in 26 districts across Kentucky; providing professional development programs, leadership workshops and new skills in STEM teaching. We are translating research in our P20 lab into applicable classroom techniques in the field.
 

Because of our work, Kentucky has moved up the ladder in educational attainment, and national non-profit advocates and policy leaders have noticed.


On February 11, I joined Governor Beshear, legislators, education leaders and teachers throughout the state to announce that the National Center for Innovation in Education will be established at the University of Kentucky. With $1.4 million in initial funding from the Gates and Hewlett foundations, this center underscores the leadership position we are taking in reform efforts.
 

Dean Mary John O'Hair has put together an outstanding team -- including national education leader Gene Wilhoit, who will run the center -- to attract this funding along with Mike Richey and his development staff, who helped with the foundations. The Center will advance research in innovative teaching techniques that advance educational outcomes both in Kentucky and nationally.
