43.073 - The Scholarship of Improvement: Building Community Around an Emerging Tradition of Practice-Focused Research

Sun, April 7, 8:00 to 9:30am, Metro Toronto Convention Centre, Floor: 800 Level, Room 801A

Session Type: Structured Poster Session


The objective of this structured poster session is to build community around the scholarship of improvement as an emerging tradition of practice-focused research. By the “scholarship of improvement”, we mean research focused on understanding and advancing continuous learning and improvement with the aim of strengthening the systems, resources, and practices that support students’ success in schools. The session is structured to showcase eleven examples of the scholarship of improvement. The posters detail new methods and measurement approaches supporting collaborative, continuous improvement; research-practice partnerships aimed at improving instruction, academic learning, and socio-emotional learning; the application of improvement methods in districts, turnaround zones, and state education agencies; and shifts in federal policy establishing the context for all of the preceding.
