Practice project director Caitlin Farrell

PROGRAM OVERVIEW
Federal guidelines now ask school and district staff to
use research evidence when making decisions about
policies and programs. Despite these realities, finding
and using solid research can be a difficult task.
Using Research to Inform Decisions will guide you in
how to find and evaluate pertinent research, with a
constant eye toward how such research can be
used to inform various school- and district-level
decisions. The workshop provides an overview of
how practitioners use research and offers several
simple tools to help you find the study you need.
You will also learn strategies and structures that
help foster an environment where research truly
informs decision-making.
This two-week online workshop is jointly led by
HGSE Professor Heather Hill, University of Colorado
Professor Bill Penuel, and other leaders in the field.
Video lectures, readings, facilitated online
discussions, and exploration exercises will help you
engage with research and gain confidence in using
evidence to make sound decisions.

A core part of the HGSE experience is cohort learning.
Over the course of the program, the curriculum is designed
to create a community of practice for participants to learn
with and from each other.
The online instruction, discussions, and job-embedded
practice should take five to seven hours over the duration
of the program. Participants who complete all individual
assessments and contribute to group discussions will
receive a certificate indicating completion of five clock
hours of instruction.
*Note: all content is self-paced, including group discussions.
Facilitators will moderate discussion boards throughout the
two-week program.

By completing the program, you will be able to:


Explore the nature of research use and current national
patterns in research use



Learn how to find relevant research and read it accurately



Evaluate research design, and be able to judge the credibility
of the research



Implement strategies for increasing the use of evidence within
your own educational setting

WHO SHOULD ATTEND


Leaders of districts or schools
