Dr. Nichole Jones will attend the 2017 Research on Teaching and Learning Summit as an oral presenter. Her presentation will introduce the conference attendees to Results Based Accountability (RBA), an action oriented performance management research tool that helps individuals develop a "disciplined way of thinking and taking action." Dr. Jones co-authored the presentation with professors: Deborah Vance; Deborah Wilson; Erica Anderson; Chris White; and Tarea Bush.

Furthermore, Dr. Jones’s RBA presentation will teach participates how to develop powerful strategies that can be used to bring about change in the classroom, with children and families and within the larger community. Lastly, the presenters will use interactive activities such as, “turn the curve" thinking to demonstrate how RBA can help identify "the story behind the data" and strategize ways to improve conditions in the participant’s specific areas of interest.
