From the IES Director: On Learning and Loss in a Time of COVID

The Institute of Education Sciences (IES) is reviewing how to fund more high-quality research to identify and support ways students can learn when they are not able to attend school in person, including online and hybrid learning models. IES Director Mark Schneider discusses this topic in his September 28, 2020 blog, On Learning and Loss in a Time of COVID.

IES will continue to support innovations in online education through its annual research competitions. IES will also continue to find (and fund) special efforts to accelerate knowledge about what works best for whom in online education.
