As part of the Education Innovation Research Network, we will be hosting a Catalyst Series over the next few months featuring leaders in education innovation who will share their insights with scholars and practitioners in the state. The series will focus on thematic areas of education innovation that are among the short and long-term goals for the future of education in Rhode Island. The goal of this series will be to catalyze new ideas in education research, help build connections between theory and practice, and generate new questions and approaches to education innovation.
