As a research center that bridges research and practice, CSET is ideally positioned for graduate students and postdoctoral scholars to examine the varied factors that contribute to excellent teaching. At CSET, students not only have the opportunity to study high-quality, research-based professional learning in their own center, they can also participate directly in that professional learning alongside faculty mentors and staff experts. This rich integration of research, practice, and personnel of various disciplines allows students a chance to implement innovative, research-based professional learning while also creating opportunities to explore new research directions. This access is unparalleled, as is the access students have to CSET’s several research-practice partnerships with districts and schools, allowing students to see the practice of teaching from the point of view of several stakeholders. Providing this context to a complex discipline like teaching creates a stimulating environment for students to pursue their individualized courses of study.
