RESEARCH-PRACTICE PARTNERSHIPS, long-term mutually beneficial
formalized collaborations between education researchers and practitioners,
are a promising strategy for producing more relevant research,
improving the use of research evidence in decision making,
and engaging both researchers and practitioners to tackle problems of practice.
Although promising, research-practice partnerships are challenging to create and difficult to maintain.
NNERPP aims to develop, support, and connect research-practice partnerships in education to improve their productivity.
NNERPP is a professional learning community for RPPs working in education.
We currently have 46 members in our network, reflecting a wide variety of approaches to the work.
The NNERPP RPP Knowledge Clearinghouse contains a curated collection of resources to help you with your education RPP efforts.
NNERPP Annual Forum update:
Our hopeful thoughts are with the NNERPP community and beyond during this challenging period of unprecedented disruption and uncertainty in our country and around the world.
In light of the uncertainty ahead of us, we think it is in the best interest of all involved that we shift our plans for this year’s NNERPP Annual Forum from an in-person gathering in Houston to a reimagined virtual collaborative learning experience taking place July 20-24.
We are now in the process of planning what this virtual experience will look like and will soon share further details with the NNERPP community.
While this crisis has disrupted some of the best laid plans for many, we look ahead with optimism to the chance to adapt and innovate the forum concept and re-create the kind of unique learning, sharing, and networking opportunities upon which our special network of friends and colleagues was founded.
Stay tuned for more information!
