The Scholar Partnership

The Scholar partnership is the conjunction of the University of Illinois College of Education, the Geneva Learning Foundation, and Learning Strategies International.

The mission of the Geneva Learning Foundation (La Fondation Apprendre) is to connect learning leaders to research, invent, and trial breakthrough approaches for new learning, talent and leadership as a way of shaping humanity and society for the better.

Birthplace of PLATO, the first system for digital learning, the University of Illinois remains at the cutting-edge of advances in education science. Professors Bill Cope and Mary Kalantzis raised over $10M to build a digital learning approach that brings to life the New Learning pedagogies that they pioneered. They are now committed to supporting the Geneva Learning Foundation to bring evidence and efficacy to humanitarian, development, and global public health learning initiatives.
