What does it mean to be an engaged scholar? Want to explore the ways your research can impact P12 education?
As a researcher and scholar, consider how engagement can be a driving force for your work.
A research practice partnership (RPP) is a collaborative and mutually-beneficial partnership that is responsive to the needs of both researcher and practitioner. RPPs may include (1) research alliances designed to investigate a system’s programs and policies; (2) design-based partnerships in which researchers and practitioners collaboratively construct research in order to solve problems of practice; and (3) networked improvement communities (NIC) in which multiple agencies and systems apply systematic inquiry to collaboratively work to improve and address critical need problems of practice (Penuel 2017). We encourage you to explore the ways RPPs provide collaborative opportunities for research to address challenges in education.
