Sometimes the most well researched and carefully implemented strategies just don't “stick.” What accounts for disconnect we often see between research and practice? What might make a difference? Over 15 years, 50 national organizations came together to address common challenges through the IDEA Partnership at the National Association of State Directors of Special Education (NASDSE). The lived experience of their members led to a focus on the human side of practice change. In this session, we will explore Leading by Convening (LbC), a blueprint for authentic engagement written entirely by stakeholders, which includes tools that are ready-to-use in your work.

Visible Learning: Collective Teacher Efficacy
