Building Better Programs

Applying a Rapid-Cycle Learning Approach to Accelerate Progress in Employment and Related Programs

This webinar explains why the Harvard Center on the Developing Child believes that building adult capabilities is critical to achieving “breakthrough outcomes” for children and why they believe “rapid-cycle learning” is a critical component of getting to these breakthrough outcomes. Adoption of this approach to learning will help to ensure that as we begin to apply executive function principles to our work, we maximize our learning about what works best and for whom. In addition, this webinar will provide information on how the Center, through its Frontiers of Innovation project, is spurring innovation by finding opportunities to apply scientific knowledge to real world practice situations.
