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 excited to release four hot-off-the-press research studies from its first round of Research Collaborative grantees. Check out the findings and the latest resources below!
