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 33 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.
