New fellowship advances implementation science in education

Department news | November 30, 2021

The University of Washington Research Institute for Implementation Science in Education (RIISE) directed by Aaron Lyon, PhD, is a methods training program developing the implementation research workforce in education and improving education outcomes. The program 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. 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. Applications are now open. Learn more
