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 41 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 was held on July 8-10, 2019 in Boston, Massachusetts.
