Drawing from Improvement Science to Scale Interventions in Global Education

June 12, 2018

In a recent blog post for Brookings, “Drawing from Improvement Science to Bridge Education Research and Practice,” Global Economy and Development Fellow Jenny Perlman Robinson describes three big things she learned about improvement science at this year’s Carnegie Foundation Summit on Improvement in Education.

These ideas resonate with the work of the Real-time Scaling Labs, which partner with local institutions in several different countries to generate evidence and recommendations related to the process of scaling. Launched by the Center for Universal Education, the Real-time Scaling Labs have drawn from improvement science to address challenges around scaling in global education and to focus on their three primary objectives: learning from, documenting, and supporting education interventions in the process of scaling.
