Relation-Centered Education Network [RCEN]

ABOUT

The RCEN includes educational theorists, researchers, practitioners and policymakers who believe that human relations are central to education. We agreed to work jointly on the following main goals:

  1. Understand how educators create positive educational relations with and among students

  2. Learn how to help novice and experienced educators develop their own relational skills

  3. Develop valid and reliable means of evaluating the quality of educational relations in an educational setting

  4. Offer a policy framework for the relational accountability, to complement the cognitive test-based accountability approaches
