The University of Washington Research Institute for Implementation Science in Education (RIISE) is the first of its kind and reflects a collaborative, innovative effort to develop the implementation research workforce in education and improve educational and related outcomes.
Led by a group of Core Faculty with extensive experience conducting implementation research in schools, RIISE provides training and mentorship to established education scholars (Fellows) to increase their expertise in conceptualizing, designing, and executing implementation research studies. Specifically, the RIISE training program will support Fellows in acquiring, building fluency with, and applying implementation research knowledge and skills in their education research to develop high-quality implementation studies that bridge the “last mile” in which education research fails to reach the individuals for whom it was intended.
The foundation of RIISE is a learning collaborative that brings together education researchers, implementation scientists, and methodologists around a shared commitment to advance their own knowledge and the field itself. Twenty-four fellows will be recruited (12 per year) to participate in:
- An annual Summer Institute in Seattle, Washington
- Individualized post-institute mentoring from Core Faculty
- Collaborative webinars with other fellows and their community partners
Pending funding, our goal is to have an application cycle in fall 2024. Check back in the summer for details.
