On December 12, 2018, the What Works Clearinghouse hosted a webinar on how WWC resources can support use of high-quality research evidence in decision making.
The webinar covered the following:
Though educators understand the importance of using research evidence to inform decision making, many K-12 teachers and district administrators struggle to incorporate research into their practice. Several factors contribute to this challenge, including limited access to relevant research, lack of time to find and review research, and lack of training on research methods and statistics. While administrators may want to share more research evidence with school- and district-level staff, they need clear, engaging, and actionable resources to increase research use. This webinar explained how the WWC provides resources to support communication and decision making.
