About

The Transforming Learning Accelerator is part of Stanford’s Long-Range Vision, which seeks to accelerate purposeful impact in the world. 


The Transforming Learning Accelerator (TLA) fosters a future where all learners thrive – no matter their cultural backgrounds, where they grow up, or their abilities. The TLA advances new approaches to understanding learning and creates a sustainable model to turn discovery into scalable and equitable solutions. It provides centralized resources to co-create solutions and move ideas and innovations beyond Stanford. Among the TLA's goals:

  • Create a new center of scholarship that bridges emerging discoveries in education, neuroscience, humanities, data science, psychology, law, and other fields;
  • Broker new and distinct partnerships that ensure solutions are effective, equitable, more immediate, and widely used;
  • Inspire new curriculum, tools, and training that meet the needs of all learners;
  • Provide analyses that support better learning opportunities for diverse learners; and
  • Expand the community of problem-solvers in education by creating new opportunities for faculty across disciplines to bring their creativity and expertise to the challenges of actual learners.
