Our Vision


The Ayers Institute for Teacher Learning and Innovation is leading the way in supporting education reform “on the ground” in the state of Tennessee.  While we believe that the transformation of our educational system begins by supporting transformational change at the policy level, we specifically function to support and sustain these reform efforts by building capacity in teachers and leaders through high quality professional learning. 

Additionally, we focus on the incubation, development and dissemination of innovative instructional strategies and ideas in collaboration with the Tennessee State Department of Education, the Tennessee Higher Education Commission, the Statewide Collaborative on Reforming Education (SCORE) and school districts and education organizations across the state.
