ITEST Project Strategy Share Meetup: Engaging Schools as Research Partners

Many ITEST projects conduct research within schools and have shared with STELAR that doing so is extremely challenging. During this Strategy Share Meetup we will discuss ITEST project strategies for creating and navigating successful research partnerships with schools by discussing the following themes:

Buy-in: How to share the research plan with school administrators, educators, and parents such that they are excited to participate and engaged in the process
Study design: How to inspire folks who are not engaged in the educative intervention to participate in the research as a comparison participant
Logistics of data collection: How to collect extant data from schools and new data from teachers or students
