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 29 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.

The 4th NNERPP Annual Forum will be held on July 10-12, 2019 in Boston, Massachusetts.

ANNOUNCEMENTS

Our newly launched space, NNERPP | Extra, delivers key insights from the intersection of education research, policy, and practice. A quarterly magazine with visual support via this website, NNERPP | Extra aims to share deep and reflective articles around pressing issues in education tackled by research-practice partnerships across the country, the impacts on policy and use in practice of such research, and high-priority questions about conducting effective RPP work. We also share new research headlines from research-practice partnerships in NNERPP in our research roundup, updated every Monday.

Our inaugural edition is coming later this month; in the meantime, explore the website here and subscribe here!
