The Institute for Education Sciences announces a new two-week training workshop on better quasi-experimental designs. This two-week workshop will expose attendees to state-of-the-art quasi-experimental methods for evaluating education interventions. It will also offer participants opportunities to conduct hands-on analyses of quasi-experimental data that we will provide. Participants in past IES Quasi-Experimental workshops without hands-on training and who now want it are encouraged to apply. The format will consist of lectures, small group discussions, individual consultations, and small group hands-on experiences.

Dates: July 31 – August 11, 2017

Location: Northwestern University at Evanston, IL

Participants: The workshop is limited to 30 participants. It is intended for faculty who teach research methods; education researchers who use quasi-experimental methods, including university faculty and staff at contract research firms, government agencies, and/or school districts; and advanced graduate students and post-docs working on causal issues or quasi- experimental designs. Past participants of the QE workshop are welcome to apply.

Workshop Instructors:

Thomas D. Cook, Northwestern University Peter Steiner, University of Wisconsin, Madison Stephen West, Arizona State University
Coady Wing, Indiana University, Bloomington Vivian Wong, University of Virginia

Applications to attend the workshop should be submitted by April 20, 2017. Decisions will be made by May 1, 2017. The application process requires an application form, a vita, and a letter describing past, present, or future involvements with the conduct of quasi-experimental studies in education.
