In this blog post, Saro Mohammed challenges researchers to go beyond simply gathering evidence. She argues that education researchers, especially those researching personalization and blended learning, are in a unique position to help scale up implementation of evidence-based practices. Because the rapid progress of instructional innovation often outpaces traditional research and dissemination methods, she offers the following suggestions to these researchers:
- Use an applied lens when designing and conducting new studies;
- Understand that dissemination and interpretation of findings is also part of the job;
- Support other stakeholders in developing skills in applying evidence to practice;
- Look to implementation to see what more needs to be studied.
