Partnering to Identify and Use Data to Inform Policy: Lessons from Palau, Poster session at the 2021 National Center for Education Statistics STATS-DC Conference: All Data on Deck!

Monday, August 16–Thursday, August 20, 2021 | Asynchronous

The Palau Partnership for the Improvement of Teaching, a collaborative effort of Regional Educational Laboratory (REL) Pacific and educators, policymakers, and other stakeholders in Palau, is focused on designing better research-based system supports for teacher preparation, induction, retention, and instruction. As part of this work, REL Pacific staff and Palau practitioners are co-developing theories of action and metrics on implementation and outcomes to (re)define professional learning. This asynchronous virtual poster session described the ways in which the partnership has designed and adapted strategies for improvement across a range of schools in Palau.
