Research Methods Training Programs 2023
IES is funding several research methods institutes in FY2023. These workshops support the training of current education researchers and practitioners to expand and upgrade their methodological skills. Participants include individuals located in colleges and universities, state and local education agencies, education-focused organizations, and companies that have developed and deployed education-related products and services. The training workshops include the following:
Advanced Single-Case Research Design and Analysis: This program will provide training to education researchers to design, conduct, and analyze single-case experiments.
Cluster-Randomized Trials: This program provides training on carrying out rigorous evaluations of the impact of education interventions including planning, implementing, and analyzing data for cluster-randomized trials randomized experiments.
Comprehensive Program for Adaptive Training in Education: This program provides training on designing, conducting, and analyzing novel experimental design methods for optimizing adaptive interventions, including SMART designs.
Economic Analysis: This program will hold trainings designed for state and local analysts and education researchers.
Evidence-based Intervention Training for Education: This program trains teams (2–6 people) on the use of evidence-based interventions in school/educational settings. The teams may come from the same school or district and include research partners.
The Institute on Mixture Modeling for Equity-Oriented Researchers, Scholars & Educators (IMMERSE): This program provides training on mixture modeling and its appropriate use in research addressing key education issues. This is a one-year training program that includes in-person statistical training, online training in data science and R, and ongoing support throughout the year.
Meta-analysis: This program will train researchers in state-of-the-art meta-analytic techniques.
Research Institute for Implementation Science in Education (RIISE): The interdisciplinary RIISE program provides mentored training to established scholars (early, mid, or even later career) from any domain of education-related research surrounding the conceptualization, design, and execution of implementation research studies.
