SEDL is a nonprofit education research, development, and dissemination organization based in Austin, Texas. Improving teaching and learning has been at the heart of SEDL's work for almost 50 years. Our projects have changed over time, but our commitment to student success has not.

We believe that improvement of the educational system to meet the needs of all children requires a strong research base that is tightly linked to practice. SEDL partners with educators, administrators, parents, and policymakers to conduct research and development projects that result in strategies and resources to improve teaching and learning. SEDL also helps partners and clients bridge the gap between research and practice with professional development, technical assistance, and information services tailored to meet their needs. These dissemination activities help our partners interpret and apply research findings based on their individual contexts and experiences.
