STRATEGY FOR A NATIONAL COMMUNITY LEARNING NETWORK: COMMUNITY LEARNING DATA DRIVEN DISCOVERY - Building Capacity for Evidence-Based Decision Making
MetadataShow full item record
The Social and Decision Analytics Laboratory (SDAL) of the Biocomplexity Institute of Virginia Tech received a planning grant from the Laura and John Arnold Foundation (LJAF) to develop a strategy for a national community learning network. Through the development of this strategy Virginia Tech formed a partnership with Iowa State University, placing Virginia and Iowa at the center of initiating a national movement that would empower local governments to embrace data-driven governance. The first steps of this national strategy involve massive deployment of community learning across Virginia and Iowa, using these states as exemplars for igniting a full national movement. Based on the research completed in this grant, Virginia Tech and Iowa State University are developing a proposal with LJAF to realize the first steps of this national strategy - a Land Grant Partnership for Data-Driven Governance.
