Powerful learning for educators. Every student succeeding. Equitable change for all.
What is the Institute for Learning?
The Institute for Learning (IFL) works to ensure that every student – especially those traditionally underserved due to income, race, and language – has access to high-level texts, tasks, and high-quality learning opportunities to build the critical thinking and deep reasoning skills that are required for success. We believe that the way to achieve equitable and sustainable change is to focus on coherent, evidence-based learning for all educators across an educational system.
Bridges to Learning
Research. Practice. Results.
Bridges to Learning, IFL’s weekly blog, connects educators with knowledge and research that shows every student can learn when provided cognitively challenging instructional opportunities and learning environments can flourish when collaboration is valued, voice is honored, and agency is realized.

The Collaborative was created as part of the Network for School Improvement, a partnership between Dallas ISD and the Institute for Learning.
