EDUCATION DESIGN is a Boston-based educational consulting firm providing program evaluation and organizational change services for K12 and post-secondary schools and colleges, as well as school districts, arts organizations, learning organizations and foundations. We focus on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) and arts education.
Our STEM projects include how the inclusion of innovative classroom learning technologies help students and teachers learn, and Arts Education projects focus on arts-integrated learning strategies.
We explore and refine methods to sustain innovations that help move schools forward and place our findings along the continuum of educational reform. Our approach to program evaluation comprises three related elements:
1) program design (delivery, content, core team leadership)
2) teaching and learning outcomes
3) school or district capacity (ability to respond and grow with change)
In addition to evaluation design, data collection, analysis and reporting of findings, we play a ‘critical friends’ role, bringing in an independent lens to help negotiate perspectives from all parties on a regular basis.
Our associates come from a variety of backgrounds including private technology companies, academia, arts organizations, and foundations.
