||Research on translation: A study of evidence-based programs and practices
||Dr. Thomas Archibald discusses evidence-based practice (EBP) in education. He begins by describing the evidence-based movement and surrounding tensions in the scientific and practitioner communities. Dr. Archibald describes his qualitative research on the implementation of EBP, practitioners' perspectives on EBP, and tensions in the field. He studied three community-based educational programs that were utilizing evidence-based practices (The ACT for Youth Center of Excellence, 4-H for Youth Development Cornell Cooperative Extension, and an adolescent HIV/AIDS prevention education program in Kenya). He questions whether EBPs are equally and seamlessly translatable to all contexts, and the "unreflective privilege" in which randomized controlled trials are held. Dr. Archibald concludes with exploring diverging theoretical approaches to discovering and defining the truth.
