    The Center for International Education, Development and Research (CIEDR) at Indiana University-Bloomington promotes an international scholarship of engagement through cross-cultural educational research and development to improve education and the social condition in the U.S. and abroad.  Guided by democratic aims and culturally sensitive pedagogy, the Center is particularly concerned with advancing education for historically marginalized and disadvantaged populations in developed and developing countries.  With educational policymakers and practitioners, CIEDR helps the national and international community through educational research, development needs, curriculum assessment, policy analysis, and teacher education.  CIEDR is the IU School of Education’s gateway for grant development with an international or global dimension.


    Founded in 1968, the Center has expanded its focus from improving social studies education to helping schools, universities, and communities through transnational research and development.  As a national leader in citizenship education and international comparative education, CIEDR focuses on: democracy and civic identity; globalization and indigenous knowledge; human rights and gender equity; teacher education; and educational leadership and policy.  CIEDR has received support from the U.S. Department of State, the U.S. Agency for International Development, and ministries abroad.  CIEDR continues to expand its involvement in Africa, Asia, Europe, the Middle East, and North and South America.

    The program will work to:

    • increase membership in ICSS
    • increase the services that ICSS members receive from ICSS
    • increase the professional development options available to members
    • provide members with materials designed to solve curriculum gaps in major commercial materials
    • extend and enhance presentations at ICSS state conference
    • develop online professional development possibilities for members

    The Board has established a new closed MEMBERS ONLY Facebook group.  You MUST be a member of the group in order to see the content in the group.  If you are a member, make certain you have ask to join.  Your membership will be checked against the online membership database, and when confirmed, you will be admitted to the closed members only group.


    During the month of March, the ICSS official website (this site) will undergo a redesign.  While general information will be available on the front page of the website, many important resources will be moved to the member-only section of the website.

    The Board is implementing the use of Adobe Connect through the Director of Communications.  Adobe Connect will allow for video conferencing and the creation of audio/video classrooms.  It will also allow ICSS to archive materials developed for ICSS members.  Members will be given usernames and temporary passwords when the system is in full operation.  These logins will allow for participation in virtual events and rapid access to archived ICSS e-resource classroom materials.

    Not certain what we are talking about when we refer to ICSS e-resources for the classroom.  Check out a couple examples.
