When Does Education Research Inform Practice? is online.
The abstract submission deadline is October 1, 2017.
The meeting will run from Wednesday, February 28-Saturday, March 3, 2018 in
The thematic focus on the conference is the adoption and implementation of effective research-based practice. Among the questions to be explored in March are:
Where has policy and practice been particularly responsive to the interpretation of evidence-based research, and what may we learn from these outcomes?
How should we balance the limitations of the generalizability of research findings with the goal of supporting practical and scalable interventions in complex educational settings?
Neal Finkelstein of WestEd chairs the Program Committee.
