Center For Educational Development and Innovation
The mission of the Center for Educational Development and Innovation (CEDI) is to achieve the perpetuation of innovation and practices throughout the educational continuum by focusing the energy, expertise, and desires of its community of students, families, scholars, and the current boundaries of practice. The Center is intent on improving teaching at all levels through seamless and innovative models that deliver the most current content and instructional knowledge and skills. Special emphasis will be given to bilingual/bicultural content education with prominence to the critical national shortage areas of mathematics and sciences. The Center will promote the integration of basic research, applied research, and best practices to develop intercultural master teaching to excel the teaching and learning process. The Center will study the various interrelationships between education, natural, and social sciences, health, and ethics to use its findings to solve local issues and their extension to similar national and international socio-cultural contexts.
