The Common Guidelines for Education Research and Development (http://bit.ly/nsf-ies_guide) define the National Science Foundation’s and Department of Education’s shared understanding and expectations regarding types of research and development projects funded by these agencies. Issued in 2013, these guidelines represent a major step toward clarifying and unifying the NSF’s and Department of Education’s policies regarding research and development, particularly with regard to different types of research and development projects and the nature of evidence needed for each type. In this webinar, we’ll provide an orientation to these relatively new guidelines; clarify the distinctions between research, development, and evaluation; and learn about targeted research within NSF’s Advanced Technological Education program.

Presenters:
Lori Wingate, Director of EvaluATE
Kirk Knestis, CEO of Hezel Associates
Will Tyson, Associate Professor of Sociology at the University of South Florida and PI for the ATE-funded research project, PathTech
