Research Conversation

We love research. And conversation. Now they’re combined.

We’re not the first folks to engage in dialogue about our research endeavors. We just perfected it!

A handful of times each semester, we give some time to a faculty to share their research with the rest of us. These one-hour (max!) sessions are always very compelling.

November 09, 2022 — 12:00-1:00 p.m. PST

Lauren Bruno and Holly Whittenburg

Supporting the Successful Transition of Students with Disabilities from School to Adult Life Through Policy & Practice

Drs. Lauren Bruno and Holly Whittenburg will present their research on two individual projects related to the transition from school to adult life for students with disabilities. They will then discuss how their two lines of research converge and the work they do together. There will be time for discussion.

Dr. Bruno’s research focuses on improving transition outcomes for youth with disabilities. More specifically, she focuses on (1) improving the preparation of pre-service and in-service educators’ ability to implement evidence-based practices related to transition; (2) using the Universal Design for Learning framework (including assistive technology) to improve post-school outcomes of youth with disabilities; and (3) post-secondary educational opportunities for youth with intellectual and development disabilities. Lauren also focuses on the shortage and high attrition rates of special educators.

Dr. Whittenburg’s research focuses on improving employment outcomes for transition-aged students on the autism spectrum and students with intellectual disability. Her recent research examines interventions to teach employment-related skills, approaches to creating opportunities for inclusive work experiences, and how special education and vocational rehabilitation law and policies affect the transition experiences of students with disabilities.

Guest Research Lecturer

The COE is pleased to announce a special visiting speaker on May 2nd, 10:00-11:00 am. Dr. Emily Tanner-Smith from the University of Oregon College of Education will discuss her research, as well as the launch of the HEDCO Institute for Evidence-Based Educational Practice.

This event will be offered on Zoom and in-person in Ed Ad 308 on the Pullman campus, so attendees can choose their preferred format.

Bridging the Research to Practice Gap: The Role of Evidence Synthesis

Abstract: In this talk, Dr. Tanner-Smith will discuss the role of research synthesis for evidence-informed decision making in education and prevention science. She will discuss the increasingly important role of evidence synthesis and summarize her current portfolio of research synthesis projects, including a recent national project aimed at improving the effectiveness of juvenile drug treatment courts. She will also discuss the launch of the new HEDCO Institute for Evidence-Based Educational Practice at the University of Oregon, which will focus on the conduct, translation, and dissemination of rapid evidence syntheses designed to meet the immediate decision-making needs of school leaders across the country.

Bio: Dr. Tanner-Smith is the Thomson Professor in the College of Education, an associate professor in the Counseling Psychology and Human Services Department, and a research scientist at the Prevention Science Institute at the University of Oregon. In addition to her faculty roles, she is also the inaugural Executive Director of the newly launched HEDCO Institute for Evidence-Based Educational Practice within the College of Education, and an associate vice president for research in the Office of the Vice President for Research and Innovation. Her PhD is in sociology from Vanderbilt University with an emphasis on quantitative methods and statistics. She is an applied research methodologist with expertise in meta-analysis and research synthesis for evidence-based decision making. Her scholarship focuses on the prevention and treatment of substance use, delinquency, mental health, and academic problems among youth. She was awarded the Nan Tobler Award from the Society for Prevention Research and the Robert Boruch Award from the Campbell Collaboration in honor of her research synthesis contributions to prevention science policy and practice. Dr. Tanner-Smith currently serves on the editorial boards for Prevention Science, Psychological Bulletin, and Research Synthesis Methods.  Her research has been funded by numerous foundations, state, and federal agencies, including the IES, NIDA, NIAAA, and NIJ.
