Knowledge Forum 2017

< Back to CSNYC Programs

Linking implementation and research to enhance program, design, execution, and learning ​​

Focusing on implementation, this year's Knowledge Forum we will seek to determine how researchers could enhance the quality of K12 CS program implementation through the use of logic models, applying theoretical perspective to their research.

There is often little connection between research and classroom practice in K-12 Education. To address this problem, attendees at the Knowledge Forum will:

  • Explore diverse examples of K12 CS being implemented in schools;
  • Hear from experts on implementation science and program evaluation to learn about the crux of program effectiveness: designing comprehensive logic models, and assessing and learning from fidelity of implementation;
  • Engage with each other to design and produce concrete logic models for their own CS education research in the effort to better connect research to implementation. These individual logic models will be combined to form a meta model for K12 CS education for all students.

Date and Location

Friday, April 7, 9:00am to 4:00pm ET
