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.

ANNOUNCEMENTS

NNERPP at the Carnegie Summit: The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching’s 2019 Summit on Improvement in Education takes place April 16 to 18 in San Francisco, California.

NNERPP is contributing to the “Leading Inter-Organizational Learning: Building Collaborative Capacity for District/University Improvement Partnerships” session on Wednesday, April 17, from 1:55 pm to 2:55 pm:

The National Network of Education Research-Practice Partnerships (NNERPP) and the University Council for Educational Administration (UCEA) are national organizations supporting improvement partnerships that bridge school districts and higher education. NNERPP develops, supports, and connects partnerships between education agencies and higher education research initiatives. UCEA supports knowledge networking for place-based preparation among its higher education membership and the school districts with which they partner. Drawing on a framework for inter-organizational leadership, this session seeks to examine the complex dynamics of leading improvement partnerships between school districts and universities. 

 

You can find the full program here. We look forward to meeting old and new friends there!

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.
