This course integrates the theoretical world of research and the real-world role of the change agent in successful implementation of curriculum and instruction for improved teaching and learning. Students identify a need, conduct a professional literature review, develop an action plan, implement the steps of the plan, communicate the results and evaluate both individual and organizational achievement and/or improvement. Future applications and recommendations are developed to inform data-driven practices. The action plan and end products are presented by the candidate to the graduate committee and incorporated into a final portfolio. Prerequisite: Completion of all program courses and Dean of AGS approval.
