Do you have a complex problem of practice? Are you interested in collaborating with a research team on an area of shared interest?
A research practice partnership (RPP) is a collaborative and mutually-beneficial partnership that is responsive to the needs of both researcher and practitioner. Thoughtfully designed partnerships foster further opportunities for collaboration between researcher and practitioner.
Why consider engaging in a Research Practice Partnership?
Assistant Professor Dr. Joshua Wilson, School of Education,
and Dr. Gaysha Beard, Red Clay Consolidated School
District, write on how addressing issues of mutual concern and interest
between research and practice serves to bridge gaps in the educational community.
