This two-block session will introduce participants to the methods and tools of improvement science. Participants will work through a simulated improvement scenario about student attendance to learn about and apply several improvement science tools, including aim statements, process maps, PDSAs, and more. The session will conclude with a reflection on how to apply improvement science to education and to the unique contexts in which participants work. Participants are expected to attend both blocks of the session. (Introductory) Capacity is limited to the first 140 participants.
