The Windward Institute’s official launch in January of 2020 was one filled with excitement and promise. Our research-based courses and workshops with new Windward Institute faculty, as well as instructors from The Windward School, spanning reading, writing, math, and other key language and social skills had attendees registered from various educational settings and included teachers, practitioners, tutors, and parents/guardians.
Developing a sustainable and successful research project takes many moving parts, such as study design, training, recruitment, scheduling, and analysis to strategically coalesce.
