Design Based Implementation Research

Special to ICLS 2014: Research-Practice Partnership Workshop for Doctoral and Early Career Researchers

March 27, 2014

At ICLS 2014, we have a unique opportunity to provide opportunities for doctoral students and early career researchers who are interested in forming and maintaining long-term partnerships with practitioners focused on improving STEM learning. Funded by NSF, this workshop will be for doctoral students, early career researchers, and others who are interested in learning more about forming partnerships with leaders of schools, districts, and informal science organizations; negotiating the focus of joint work in partnerships; partnerships focused on access and equity in STEM learning; and writing about partnership work for academic and audiences. The workshop will interactive and participants will have a chance to work with researchers and practitioners engaged in mature partnerships, hear from leaders in educational organizations about the most important problems they face that can benefit from research, and develop and iterate upon on how to pursue and frame their work, with support from workshop leaders.
