Workshop Location
The Training Institute will be held at the Hilton Orrington Hotel in Evanston. The Hilton Orrington is located on Orrington Avenue, between Church and Clark Street, in the town of Evanston, just north of Chicago.

The eighth Summer Training Institute's aim is to increase the national capacity of researchers to develop and conduct rigorous evaluations of the impact of education interventions. The course sessions will provide intensive training on planning, implementing, and analyzing data for cluster-randomized trials. Principal Investigator Larry Hedges, PhD, will lead the workshop.
