|About the Kuyers Institute
Thanks to a visionary contribution from Milt
and Carol Kuyers, Calvin College is now home to an institute devoted
to the study and promotion of pedagogy, learning, and educational leadership
from an integrally Christian perspective.
The Kuyers Institute will focus on teaching and learning from pre-kindergarten
through college, and will foster research and professional development.
The Kuyers Institute will act as a catalyst to gather interested professionals
for workshops, conferences, and research seminars, and will coordinate
research projects in a variety of settings.
The Institute will involve a wide variety of participants and address
How to Reach Us
Practitioners in Pre-K through 16 education, teachers who are seeking
to develop more effective practice and deeper reflection on that practice.
Students, whose improved learning is central to this effort. Stakeholders
in local schools and colleges will also be influenced through this
work as we articulate best practices, disseminate research findings,
and advance theoretical reflection.
- Finally, we hope to speak to and collaborate with the larger community
of educators, both in higher education and elementary and secondary
settings, in North America and internationally, as we articulate and
study the unique contributions of faith to the educational process.
