Research + Practice Partnership Workshop
Workshop on building research-practice partnerships:
Want to turn your great public-engagement idea into knowledge-building for the field? If you’re developing a project or proposal for public engagement with STEM (PES)—and want to integrate a learning research strategy—consider the upcoming “Research-Practice Partnerships in ISE” workshop.
Happening Tuesday–Wednesday, July 11–12, at the American Association for the Advancement of Science offices in Washington, D.C, the workshop will help you design a PES project or proposal with impact while building research-based evidence through an emerging approach called research-practice partnerships. The workshop will led be by the Research + Practice Collaboratory and the Center for Advancement of Informal Science Education (CAISE).
Travel support is available for teams of three to four participants: a lead scientist, science communicator, or informal science education (ISE) professional whose public engagement work will be investigated; the researcher who will lead the study; and one or two other individuals who will be directly involved in project implementation (whether from the program or research side).
Starting May 1, applications will be reviewed and considered as they come in until workshop is full.
