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 38 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 countdown is on for the 2019 NNERPP Annual Forum! The Annual Forum, NNERPP’s signature event, will take place July 8-10, at Gillette Stadium near Boston, Massachusetts.
Over 140 attendees, including researchers and local and state education agency representatives from all partnerships in NNERPP, as well as invited guests from relevant foundations, research centers, and other education organizations, will come together to discuss all-things-RPP. We will have 40 research-practice partnerships in attendance!
This year marks our fourth official convening. We will gather under the theme “The RPP Journey: Learning Together in Pursuit of Equity and Excellence.”
We are excited for what is sure to be a unique, dynamic, and collaborative learning experience!
