Did it Work?  Applying Education Research  to Inform Practice

Posted by Philadelphia Education Fund on January 29, 2018
Join us for breakfast on February 1 , 2018
(rescheduled from January 4)
from 7:45-10:00 AM
as we discuss:
Did it Work? 
Applying Education Research 
to Inform Practice
When it comes to education, “Did it work?” is often the toughest question to answer.
How do we know whether our literacy program is really driving results for students? Is our teacher professional development program helping improve academic performance in the classroom? Can we be certain that our program is really delivering the impact we most want?
We try and answer tough questions through data and through research. But what are we to do in a city where student data can be hard to access and research can be difficult to conduct?
Attend February’s Education First Compact where you will be joined by a panel of experts who are working to address these challenges in Philadelphia.
Learn of efforts at the School District of Philadelphia to streamline data access and to support research efforts. And, hear from researchers who are helping to bridge the distance between education research and education practice.
