Wondering where to start with the I-A-T framework? Use this introductory breakdown to learn more about the framework and the activities associated with scaling an educational product.
This document introduces the Invent-Apply-Transition (I-A-T) framework and outlines the iterative steps and scaling activities that are involved to successfully bring educational innovations to market.
Visit the LEARN to Scale Toolkit for more information, activities, and tools around creating, testing, and scaling evidence-based educational products. The steps and considerations for the Invent phase of developing a product are now live! The Apply section will be available later this spring!
The purpose of the Invent-Apply-Transition (I-A-T) framework is to provide researchers with a systematic approach to sustainably scale educational innovations. SRI hypothesizes that certain activities and key decisions at different stages of innovation could increase the probability of sustainable scaling. SRI started with traditional startup methodologies from its own Entrepreneur-in-Residence program and then added key tasks and considerations that are unique to education.
