Breakthroughs in Education


For over a century, College of Education at the University of Illinois has been the site of breakthrough educational research and pedagogical ideas. This repository showcases the best and most influential of that work. It contains both legacy publications (including materials that have gone out of print and are now hard to find) and recent publications when the first publisher allows institutional self-archiving. The contributors are faculty and research students, including former as well as current members of the College.

The Breakthroughs in Education repository sets out to become a comprehensive internet archive of the work of the College of Education. However, we also want to make this archive accessible with online videos of faculty ‘curating’ or selecting a group of publications for commentary—describing a set of publications in the past which contributed to a particular educational breakthrough, or describing the lines of thinking involved in a new area of research.
