Office of Educational Research and Outreach

Office of Educational Research and Outreach (OERO) supports faculty and graduate students in Virginia Tech’s School of Education as they pursue evidence-based empirical and qualitative inquiries related to education, training, program and product evaluation, and related venues in statewide, national, and international contexts.

Among our goals is the enabling of high quality research and data management in all areas related to education, pursuit of publicly and privately funded research initiatives, and the preparation or coordination of training related to grant-writing, budgeting, and project management.

The Office will maintain and build a culture of careful, intentional inquiry into human learning, where systematic collection and thoughtful use of data in education is the highest goal. We will encourage our faculty to continue investigations through the creation of team-based approaches that emphasize rigor and cross-disciplinary collaboration. We will continue to encourage the dissemination of findings to colleagues at national and international conferences.
