Innovation & Education

We inspire educators to personalize their profession through innovation.

Get Started

A Lab for EducationAbout Us

At the Northwest Nazarene University Doceō Center, we strive to inspire personalized learning through innovative practices in education. We research and explore the convergence of technological innovation with effective teaching strategies and then use the information gathered to develop and deliver training that will equip and build the capacity of in-service and pre-service teachers.

What is Doceō?

Doceō is Latin for teach, instruct, tell, show, demonstrate. We are a part of the Doceō Center Network, founded by the J.A. & Kathryn Albertson Foundation for educational reform in Idaho. For more information on the Doceō Center initiative, visit the J.A.and Kathryn Albertson Foundation.

Why Idaho?

Idaho is small enough to see change happen quickly, but large enough to show how ideas can be replicated in other parts of the world. Idaho has approximately 285,000 students enrolled in K-12 programs. 70% of those are in rural districts. Good ideas spread rapidly.

Northwest Nazarene University

NNU, a Christian university, offers over 60 areas of study, 18 master's degrees in seven different disciplines and two doctoral degrees (both in education). NNU has been deeply connected to education in Idaho over the past century and continues to graduate highly-skilled, certified teachers to work in Idaho's schools. The NNU Doceō Center can be found on campus in the Learning Commons.
