Project and Experience
Innovative Teaching and Learning Research
Launched in 2009, ITL Research is a multiyear global research program designed to investigate the factors that promote the transformation of teaching practices and the impact those changes have on students’ learning outcomes across a broad range of country contexts. As part of Microsoft’s commitment to education transformation, its Partners in Learning Program initiated the Innovative Teaching and Learning (ITL) Research project to contribute information and policy insights on where and how effective education transformation is taking place around the world.
Maria Langworthy is the International Project Director for ITL Research on behalf of Microsoft’s Partners in Learning. Maria developed the original concept for ITL Research, and currently manages SRI International’s work on the project as well as coordinating the partnerships with education system leaders from each of the participating countries. She also frequently presents the research findings at conferences and meetings.
