Celebrating 20 years!
Aga Khan University Institute for Educational Development (AKU-IED), an integral part of Aga Khan University, was established in 1993. Our mandate is to contribute towards education reforms for enhancing the overall efficiency and effectiveness of education programmes/institutions in the developing countries, particularly in Pakistan.
Within a short period of time, our Institute has emerged as a 'national resource' for building institutional capacity of education systems through education, conducting research, promoting scholarship, offering innovative teaching programmes and influencing education policy and practice. Our efforts focus primarily on enhancing professional knowledge and skills and status of teachers, teacher educators and others, who are responsible for successful implementation of educational reforms in Pakistan and other developing countries.
We offer a number of professional development programmes for teachers and others that are grouped as graduate programmes and professional development programmes.
We inspire our students to become life-long learners and achieve excellence in education. If you are passionate about effectively teaching children as leaders of tomorrow, efficiently managing your institution, or conducting research on issues in education, join one of our programmes to learn and succeed!
