EDUC 3505 - RESEARCH-PRACTICE PARTNERSHIPS: APPROACHES TO COLLABORATIVE DESIGN, INQUIRY & CHANGE
In this course, students learn principles and strategies for developing a research program that is place-based, community-engaged, and rooted in partnership. Through engagement with texts, colleagues, and experienced Research-Practice Partnership (RPP) members, students develop practical skills for navigating key RPP processes including building mutualistic relationships, negotiating research questions, applying design-based implementation research methods, and communicating about engaged research. Possibilities for RPP work are explored and contextualized within the greater Pittsburgh region, within larger historical and contemporary dynamics of exploitation and racism, and within multiple traditions of engaged scholarship and movements for educational justice.
