Ed Research Works focuses its efforts on many types of projects:
Current and past projects concretely illustrate Ed Research Works' objectives and impact.
For example, research communication series IgnitED Research, aims to build stronger connections between learning science and instructional practice.
The Learning Accelerator's Measurement Fellowship mobilized a diverse group of individuals working at the nexus of research and practice to generate field-friendly, evidence-based resources to improve effective implementation of blended learning instructional strategies.
Advisory roles, such as with SXSW EDU, and the US ED Office of Educational Technology's Rapid Cycle Evaluation Coach, build capacity among educators for using research in their daily work.
Ed Research Works was founded and is led by Sarojani S. Mohammed, Ph.D. who has 15 years' experience leading research studies and external evaluations of education initiatives in public, private, and nonprofit settings.
Dr. Mohammed has spent her career working to ensure research equitably improves K-12 learning experiences, and is a founding board member of Capacity Catalyst, an Austin, TX-based nonprofit on a mission to empower communities through more accessible and adaptable research and evaluation.
