Hi everyone, great to be here today. I'm a consultant changing decision-making from exclusive to collaborative.
Mary Avalos
Hi from Miami, FL! I’m wondering if Vivian has written these findings up for publication? And if so, where might we find these sources?
Lela Chakhaia
I know that William T Grant Foundation is mostly focusing on US, but I was wondering if Vivian has done any work on the use of education research in international contexts, and how do you think these principles would apply outside UA
Rebecca Maynard
Re the Food Order analogy: How do you think about the role of the kitchen and wait staff in helping guide the customer's orders-- develop an appreciation for new or different foods? Seems there may be two sources of the mismatch between what is supplied and demanded.
Sylvia Pu
A few follow-up questions regarding the case study on developing Math standards. How were the standards implemented? What processes were engineered to help students meet the standards? Were there any pushbacks? Did the updated standards elevate inequity issues among students with limited support? I know these are loaded questions. But I just want to get us to think as a group more about the "data/standards to action" process. Thank you.
Steve Fleischman
Question for Vivian: How to we address reluctance of funders to invest in "relationships and trust"--which is the building block of evidence use? Relationships and trust are process focused and seen as "soft" and sponsors like to focus on "outcomes." Same for capacity building. How do we better make the case for relationships and trust?
Jim Kohlmoos
Vivian, can you tell us a bit about democratizing evidence and how this fits into the use of research evidence?
Penny Sebring
The UChicago Consortium has found it valuable to partner with nonprofit organizations to promote use of research evidence by the CPS district and schools. Have researchers investigated this?
Jorge Ruiz de Velasco
With respect to the issue of how research becomes embedded in routines of practice — could you say more about how RPPS can move from researchers delivering a research product — to researchers helping practitioners build the norms and routines of data-informed inquiry to adapt research to practice over time?
Rebecca Maynard
Thanks Vivian and Ruth for a very stimulating session. Regrettably, I need to drop off.
Beth Gamse
I know Vivian didn't want to stretch the restaurant metaphor beyond its capacity, but eating in a restaurant is perhaps a luxury rather than a necessity, so how can we shift toward a model in which research is more routinely integrated into decision-making?
Steve Fleischman
Thanks Vivian. I appreciate the glass half full view.
Kim Austin
I’m also interested in Jorge and Beth’s questions about embedding research in routines - what does this look like at the school, district and state level?
Kim Austin
To extend the metaphor - what does this look like at the kitchen table?
Chelsea Farley
