PWHOPL is an acronym for People Who Help Other People Learn, and includes but is not limited to mentors, managers, section leaders, attending physicians, community health workers, tutors, early childhood education workforce, coaches, classroom paraprofessionals, and more – anyone who teaches but has not had the benefit of the thousands of hours of training that professional teachers receive.

The Stanford Accelerator for Learning seeks to fund research that leads to new understanding of how to optimize rapid capability development and fosters ways to use technology to support PWHOPL to be more effective at helping other people learn. We request proposals for projects and learning technologies that support adult learners who have teaching responsibilities but often receive minimal formal education, if at all.

This RFP is open to teams that include at least one Stanford PI-eligible faculty, student, research staff, or postdoc working in partnership with other faculty, students, research staff, postdocs at Stanford.
