Sharon Rallis, Dwight W. Allen Distinguished Professor of Education Policy and Reform, was invited to lead a workshop, “Conducting Useful Evaluations”, in Istanbul, Turkey. The workshop, sponsored by Bahcesehir University, was attended by teams of teachers and school administrators, as well as teams from NGOs, foundations, and businesses. Co-facilitating the workshop with Rallis was her former advisee, Aysen Kose (Ed.D. 2010). Because the majority of the workshop participants were not English speakers, Kose also interpreted. During her visit, Rallis also spoke about school principal and leadership training in the U.S. during a forum at the university about principal training and appointment.
