The Decision Education Teacher Fellowship

A Community for Teachers to Collaborate and Bring Decision Education to Their Students.

Teachers from all over the country, working collaboratively for their students.

Each year, the Alliance invites teachers from across the countryall schools, grades, and subject areasto apply for a Decision Education Teacher Fellowship that enables them to work collaboratively as part of a cohort, and independently to build skills that will shape their students’ lives.

The Alliance offers three levels of the Fellowship: one level for teachers interested in learning about Decision Education, and two advanced levels for teachers who have already completed one or more Fellowships, or have experience teaching decision-making skills.

The year-long Fellowship aims to:

Enable teachers to learn about the Domains within Decision Education by working with Alliance and Decision Science experts.

Create on-going collaboration as a cohort where teachers share ideas, classroom activities, best practices, and suggestions on how to make Decision Education part of every student’s learning experience.

Implement classroom activities and reflect on student learning with other teachers in the fellowship.

Capture results from their classrooms to share with the Alliance as well as current, past, and future Fellows.

Teachers in the Fellowship receive a stipend, supported by the generosity and passion of Alliance donors.
