Implementation Science Leadership Academy

Implementation Science Introduction Video

Fact: Students cannot benefit from interventions they never experience.

Despite the well-meaning intentions of educators, access to best practices/programs, and supportive leadership, student outcomes are not consistently improving across academic, behavioral and social domains. Educators invest countless hours, resources, and funds, but grow frustrated not knowing why these efforts aren’t achieving the promised or intended results.

WHY? A key reason is that for decades focus has been on the development or research behind educational best practices, but a huge gap remained for how to actually put “it” into place in your classrooms, schools, and districts.

The solution to closing that gap comes from an emerging field named Implementation Science. Using Implementation Science best practices, tools, and strategies, you and your team will have the opportunity to sustain the key practices in your organization and systematically work to align systems that support teachers.

Join AIM Research Advisory Board Member Dr. Michelle Duda for a FREE Informational Webinar or our two-day Implementation Science Leadership Academy to learn how the emerging field of Implementation Science can help you put educational best practices into place in your classrooms, schools and districts.

The goal of the academy is to build your leadership team’s capacity to better implement any initiative, program, or system change event. This highly applied session is designed to introduce Implementation Science frameworks and research, and will provide you with tools and techniques your team can immediately begin to apply in your organization.

This highly relevant and practical session is designed to help your team:

  • Understand why initiatives aren’t producing the desired outcomes
  • Learn how to sustain your priority initiatives
  • Align your district or school strategic plans into actual practice
  • Immediately apply tools, strategies and process within your organization
  • Learn ways to build in “Implementation Routines” into your regular activities
  • Develop a clearly defined Implementation Action Plan
  • Since the foundational goal of the Implementation Science Leadership Academy is to build your team’s skills for applying new tools, strategies, and techniques, training and coaching opportunities are embedded across 3 events (2 virtual meetings and 1 applied 2-day workshop).

    Leadership teams of 3-5 are strongly encouraged to attend, and other members may be included if they are responsible for your priority initiative. It is strongly encouraged that the Leadership team bring at least one priority initiative/evidence-based practice (e.g. Literacy, Math, Tiered Systems: RtI, MTSS) to build an Implementation Action Plan for school-wide or district-wide application.
