November 2015 RPP Forum: Defining the Focus of Partnership Work

The Research-Practice Partnerships Forum is a monthly webinar series created by the Research + Practice Collaboratory to offer information, strategies, and discussion about partnership experiences. Every third Thursday of the month, the host, Bill Penuel, is joined by a panel of researchers and educators participating in research-practice partnerships around the country to share tools and insights to support new and ongoing collaborations.

In this second forum, "Defining the Focus of Partnership Work," panelists discussed the following:
- How do partners who bring different strengths, needs, and interests decide on a productive focus for their work together?
- How does this focus change or stay the same over time?
