February Keynote Presentation
with Caryn Ward and Correy Watkins
What implementation strategies and methods are needed to ensure effective use of evidence-based practices with integrity to address the academic and social-emotional learning needs of our students? How do we ensure these implementation strategies are relevant, feasible, and impactful for our different contexts? This session will introduce why effective implementation strategies are needed and share how active implementation strategies can be used to answer these questions through the use of case examples and data stories.
Participants in this session will learn
- articulate why implementation science is needed for supporting the use of evidence based practices
- make connections between current methods and active implementation strategies
- identify an active implementation strategy and/or tool to support implementation of evidence based practices
