HARNESSING RESEARCH INTO PRACTICE IN EDUCATION

Entrepreneurs in the K-12 market are often surprised to learn that "evidence of effectiveness is by far educators’ number 1 priority when it comes to how they judge the value of instructional products marketed to their districts and schools. In fact, it far outweighs cost.” (EdWeek Dec 2018)

To gain an in-depth understanding of the growing role research plays in driving product development and decision-making for utilization in addressing the challenges in education, join in the Research into Practice bootcamp, offered online via webcast (and live in Philadelphia) on April 1, 2019. With experts from the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, SBIR, and Penn Graduate School of Education as your guide, you'll learn about the tools that education companies can employ to demonstrate impact and funding sources that may support research to practice.

Topics covered include:

  • Role of data/research in purchase decision making
  • Types of data and relative value of each
  • Piloting
  • Research tools
  • Funding sources
