Turning Science into Strategies

Despite decades of effort trying to marry scientific insights with real-world practice, very little (if anything) has changed in fields ranging from education to business.  During this compelling and interactive session, we will explore why laboratory research rarely impacts professional practice, consider what is required in order to translate research for the real-world, and dive deeply into several concrete examples of this process in action within the field of education.
