Purpose: This project team serves as a research network lead for the Expanding the Evidence Base for Career and Technical Education (CTE) research network. They are responsible for the CTE network administration and coordination, and they carry out research, training, and dissemination activities designed to increase the number and quality of CTE impact evaluations and strengthen the capacity of the field to conduct future CTE research and evaluation. The specific aims of this CTE Network are to increase: 1) the evidence base about the impact of CTE programs and policies on student outcomes, and 2) the pipeline of new CTE researchers.
Products: The network lead will engage in ongoing dissemination activities with other members of the network to develop products that advance the CTE research field and educate the public about what works in CTE. Products will include the network website, an evaluability assessment report, a research synthesis, briefings for policymakers and practitioners, and presentations for a range of stakeholders.
