On March 16, 2016, Dr. Martha Martinez from ODE and Dr. Karen Thompson from OSU served as panelists on webinar hosted by the National Center for Research on Policy and Practice to present findings from their study of IES-funded Researcher-Practitioner Partnerships.

Drawing on surveys and interviews of 106 individuals from 27 different partnerships, this report found overwhelming enthusiasm among both researchers and practitioners for collaborating in partnerships, with 100% of survey respondents either agreeing or strongly agreeing that they would participate in a partnership again.

Alongside Dr. Martinez and Dr. Thompson, leaders a different partnership between SRI and Clark County Public Schools in Las Vegas, Nevada, reflected on the successes and challenges of their collaborations.
