❝CRDG’s preeminence as a leader in educational research contributes to, and is supported by, the strong research tradition of the University of Hawai‘i at Manoa and the teaching, research, and service missions of the College of Education.❞
The Curriculum Research & Development Group (CRDG) is an organized research unit in the College of Education at the University of Hawai‘i. Since 1966, CRDG has served the educational community locally, nationally, and internationally by
- conducting research and creating, evaluating, disseminating, and supporting educational programs that serve students, teachers, parents, and other educators in grades preK–12; and
- contributing to the body of professional knowledge and practice in teaching and learning, curriculum development, program dissemination and implementation, evaluation and assessment, and school improvement.
CRDG is composed of seven research and development sections: Art, English, Learning Technology, Mathematics, Program Research and Evaluation, Science, and Social Studies. Four sections, the University Laboratory School, CRDG Summer Programs, Marketing and Publications Services, and Information Technology, provide support for CRDG and its partners within the University and beyond.
Since its founding, CRDG has operated within a research model that combines innovative thinking with real world application, and in this role it has continued to add to the body of professional knowledge while bringing a large cross-section of the education community into the research process.
