The Harvard Graduate School of Education is committed to engaging with current educators — supporting them in their professional development, connecting them to research and best practices, and sharing the voices and new perspectives of leading practitioners, scholars, and thinkers in the field of education. We invite educators to explore our offerings.
Usable Knowledge is an online resource from the Harvard Graduate School of Education that aims to make education research and best practices accessible to educators, district and network leaders, policymakers, members of the media, nonprofit leaders, entrepreneurs, and parents.
Usable Knowledge translates research by Harvard faculty and other leading scholars and practitioners, creating vibrant, easy-to-understand stories and videos for sharing on our website, in our email newsletter, and in social media. We aim to be a trusted source for powerful, actionable insights into what works in education — to put smart, trustworthy, and useful information directly into the hands of practitioners, who can use it to make a difference in their classrooms, schools, districts, universities, and communities.
Professional Education at the Harvard Graduate School of Education serves more than 8,000 educators around the world each year through more than 70 programs for early childhood, K-12, and higher education professionals.
Chaired by HGSE faculty and grounded in the latest research, our Professional Education programs are designed to make direct impact on the practice of education professionals, the work of schools and institutions, and the lives and learning of students.
We believe that through exceptional professional education that is responsive and relevant to the challenges practitioners face, we can equip and empower educators and institutions around the world to improve their practice in service of their students, schools, and communities. Through transformative adult learning, we elevate student learning.
We invite you to learn more about our professional education opportunities and look forward to welcoming you to a future program.
