Strategic Learning for Equity & Improvement: An Adaptive Framework for Improvement Efforts

60-min | In-Person
Focus Areas: Educator Development; Equity, Diversity, and Belonging; Improvement Capability; System Transformation Toward Continuous Improvement

Improvement science can empower educators to develop and improve systems that support all students to thrive. However, conducting improvement science through Networked Improvement Communities (NICs)—a time and resource-intensive endeavor—is not always feasible. In conditions where we do not have the structures and resources to build a full-fledged NIC, how can we more flexibly apply core improvement science principles to ensure that we intentionally and systematically learn from our efforts? In this session, we explore this adaptive challenge by introducing and inviting participants to engage with the Rennie Center’s new Strategic Learning for Equity & Improvement (SLEI) Framework.
