Overview

The Improvement Science in Education  course is part of the Leading Educational Innovation and Improvement MicroMasters Program from University of Michigan - MichiganX. 

Improvement science brings discipline and methods to different logics of innovation by integrating:

  • Problem analysis
  • Use of research
  • Development of solutions
  • Measurement of processes and outcomes
  • Rapid refinement through plan-do-study-act cycles.

For teachers, school leaders, and system leaders, improvement science moves educational innovation out of the realm of “fad” and into the realm of research-based, evidence-driven continuous improvement, with the goal of increasing the effectiveness of educational practice.

That, in turn, will support schools and systems in responding to calls to improve opportunities to learn and student performance and calls to reduce achievement gaps by improving the day-to-day work students, teachers, and leaders.

What you'll learn:

  • Principles and methods of improvement science in education and other social sectors
  • Means of introducing improvement science in schools and systems
  • Approaches to accelerating improvement through networked improvement communities

In this introduction to improvement science, developed in collaboration with the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching, learners will explore:

  • Problem-specific and user-centered design and analysis
  • Differences in implementation and outcomes as resources for improvement
  • Improving systems to improve practice
  • Driving improvement through measurement, evidence, and disciplined inquiry
