The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in unprecedented challenges for the field of education. Educators and leaders are struggling to assess the long-term impacts of ongoing disruptions caused by the pandemic, and the need for data and evidence to meet these challenges has never been greater.
Research-practice partnerships (RPPs) are uniquely structured to meet the challenges of this moment. They create space for researchers and education leaders to discover unmet needs, let go of ineffective conventional norms, and identify innovative teaching and learning approaches. Ideally, this ensures that education practice is informed by research and that research is informed by real-world conditions and perspectives.
This resource discusses the advantages of RPPs and how leaders can use them to effectively navigate pandemic recovery and provide invaluable insights that support students and schools.
