Invitation to join Research + Practice Partnership working group

To: SOE faculty and staff 

We are interested in forming a working group to explore research-practice partnerships. During monthly meetings, we hope to develop shared understandings related to the following questions: What is a partnership? How do partnerships work, especially when focused on research and practice? What successes and constraints have we experienced or foresee experiencing when engaged in research practice partnerships and how might we problem solve those dilemmas for our unique contexts? In the long run, we hope to develop an institute/center/network within the SOE that could support our collective efforts to partner with community organizations and school districts.

If you are interested, please join us at the first meeting on September 7 from 10:30-12:00 in room 401. During the meeting, we will: (a) do introductions, (b) share information about the history and purpose of the working group, (c) explore partnership as a model for bringing together research and practice, and (d) develop individual and community goals for the group. Please read the chapter linked below before you come – we will use it to start the discussion. Also, we have scheduled room 401 from 10:30-12:00 on October 12, November 9, and December 7 for our future meetings. If you have questions, please contact one of us. We hope to see you on the 7th.
