Have you ever wondered how other school systems and organizations develop their research agendas? This session will help participants create a personalized roadmap to develop and execute a research agenda. Session leaders will provide tips and tools for prioritizing a set of research questions, identifying relevant literature, clarifying data needs, and establishing a research calendar and timelines. In addition, we will provide a brief overview of open source resources to aide in data analysis and advice on tailoring presentation of findings for various audiences.
