About Catalyst

The world's first global community for education leaders and change agents. The purpose of Catalyst is to crowdsource solutions to the (often shared) challenges that we face in education.

To be a Catalyst is to be a force for change — an innovator who finds no contentment in the status quo, and no greater thrill than making an impact that matters.

Bring your voice to the discussions that are driving education forward. Be part of the transformation.

How It Works

Challenges are for taking action. They are what set Catalyst apart from other content rich sites. You will encounter a series of Challenges sourced from the community and posted by the Catalyst team. These Challenges will invariably ask you to submit your ideas, suggestions, innovations, experiences (via different media) in the context of real-life scenarios. The idea is to harness the power of the collective Catalyst community to move the needle on important issues in education and learning.
Submissions will be seeded back into the community, connections will be forged, collaboration will occur and transformation will result.

Activities are about rapid feedback. They take the form of polls, quizzes, questions and other quickfire engagements. We use them to arrive at consensus, set future themes, and give the community quick and easy ways to share thoughts and be heard.
Always a click away, Activities help us keep the site and it’s content on point. 

Community Forum
The Community Forum is the place to go if you have a direct question or suggestion that you can’t find represented on the site. It’s a safe space where you can ask the community anything you’d like. From advice on issues you’re facing to feedback on decisions you have made. Crucially, it’s also a place where you can add value to your fellow Catalysts by answering questions and entering into dialogue with people. 

Catalyst Blog
The Catalyst Blog is where you’ll find stories, showcases and other content that serves as inspiration, gives context and dives into the nuance of our increasingly complex and challenging sector. It’s the place to keep up to date with what’s happening throughout the global Catalyst network and will often reveal interesting insights into the live Challenges.
As with any good blog you’ll also be able to comment on featured content and continue the conversation beyond the initial post.
