Self-study involves creating a team whose members prepare individually for discussion, meet to participate in discussion and the decision-making process, and then plan next stepsContinue reading SEA and LEA Guides for Identifying Evidence-Based Intervention for School Improvement
Research-practice partnerships are a promising strategy for producing more relevant research, improving the use of research evidence in decision making, and engaging both researchers and practitioners to tackle problems of practice. Download the guide >
