Bryan Cook's work focuses on facilitating and examining the use of open science and crowdsourcing in education research, researching research (i.e., meta-research) in education, and identification of evidence-based practices in special education. Recent accomplishments include working with research partners across the country as PI on a crowdsourced replication study funded by IES investigating teaching science facts to elementary students with high-incidence disabilities, receiving a $2.5 million leadership grant (in partnership with Temple University) from the U.S. Department of Education to train doctoral students with a focus on identifying and implementing evidence-based practices for students with disabilities, and co-authoring an article in Educational Researcher examining questionable research practices among education researchers (Makel et al., 2021) that was featured in an online Forbes article.
