Hosted on March 8, 2011.
Anyone who attends a conference, engages in professional development, or even has a conversation about instruction is bombarded with the term “evidence-based practice.” Evidence-based practices represent the most recent, and perhaps most sophisticated, attempt to identify what works and what has the potential to meaningfully improve the educational outcomes of students with disabilities. But what exactly does evidence-based practice mean for practitioners? How are evidence-based practices different from “best practices” and “research-based practices?” Where can you find them? How should you select them? How can you use them? How can you evaluate them? This webinar will provide researchers, teacher educators, administrators, teachers, parents, and other stakeholders with the answers to these and other questions related to evidence-based practices for students with disabilities.
- Value the rationale for and definition of evidence-based practices.
- Identify sources for evidence-based practices in special education, as well as specific evidence-based practices for different groups of students with disabilities.
- Appropriately select evidence-based practices for students with disabilities.
- Implement, adapt, monitor, and support the guidelines of evidence-based practices.
- Identify limitations and ongoing issues related to evidence-based practices.
