A white paper by Cynthia Coburn, William Penuel, and Kimberly Geil
The Foundation has aligned our funding for advocacy, communications, and program development around improving the connections between research and practice. One interest is learning how to develop and sustain productive research-practice partnerships.
We commissioned a white paper surveying the current landscape of partnerships involving school districts to better understand their challenges and strategies for success. We are excited to announce the release of that paper, Research-Practice Partnerships: A Strategy for Leveraging Research for Improvement in School Districts. It offers sharp insights about this growing field.
The Foundation has also compiled more resources for those interested in or involved with research-practice partnerships.
