Building Evidence Systems to Integrate Implementation Research and Practice in Education
Ming, Norma
William T. Grant Foundation
Analyzing education through the lens of implementation science illustrates its potential for addressing fundamental challenges in education (Century & Cassata, 2016). Learning emerges from rapidly-changing experiences and high-intensity social interactions, which requires instruction to continually adapt. These adaptations vary in content and impact, possibly improving quality or undermining fidelity (Hill & Erickson, 2020; LeMahieu, 2011; O'Donnell, 2008; Penuel & Means, 2004). As a field, administrators need to improve not just the quality of research evidence (Ming & Goldenberg, 2021), but also the quality of research use and the processes supporting effective implementation of evidence-based practices. Whether framed as a problem of practice or research use, understanding implementation is critical for identifying and redressing the inequitable distribution of resources, facilitators, and barriers in systems, which give rise to disparities in student outcomes.
