Student-Centered Learning Research Collaborative

In 2016, JFF’s Students at the Center initiative announced a first-of-its-kind research collaborative that will build, define, apply, and share a robust evidence base for student-centered learning. This bold new initiative began with a core group of scholars, school leaders, policymakers, practitioners, and funders, each known for their impact and influence, coming together to clarify and catalyze the field. Their charge: to work in partnership to investigate and evaluate what we know about student-centered learning both in and beyond today’s schools, and then leverage that knowledge to affect meaningful change at scale. The Student-Centered Learning Research Collaborative is grateful for thought leadership and anchor funding from the Nellie Mae Education Foundation and additional support from the Barr Foundation, Carnegie Corporation of New York, Oak FoundationOverdeck Family Foundation, and the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation.

New Findings from the Research Collaborative

The Student-Centered Learning Research Collaborative is excited to release four hot-off-the-press research studies from its first round of Research Collaborative grantees. Studying classrooms from California to rural Maine, research teams from American Institutes for Research, Education Development Center, and High Tech High Graduate School of Education explored proficiency-based education, student agency, and personalization through collaboration.
