Fostering Knowledge Use in STEM Education - A Brief on R&D Partnerships with Districts and Schools


"Produced by NSF-supported researchers and developers, this practice brief makes a case for substantive partnerships between STEM education researchers or developers and the districts and schools where the R&D takes place. The authors have found that partnerships can enhance the quality, relevance, and usability of project outcomes, with implications for the sustained and scaled use of project knowledge. Written for an audience of fellow researchers and developers, the brief summarizes what the authors have learned about creating and maintaining partnerships, as well as potential pitfalls and challenges. Along with practical strategies, the authors provide examples from project experience."
