Translating Research Into Practice: Suggestions for Working with Practitioners.
Nolan, Robert R.; Roper, Susan Stavert
One of the reasons educational research does not have greater impact on the classroom, the authors argue, is that researchers are inexperienced in working with practitioners. Based on their experience working with a work/study group composed jointly of school personnel from a San Jose junior high school and faculty members and students from Stanford University, the authors discuss ways to help teachers learn to apply research results to their own classrooms. The discussion is organized around three main suggestions for helping practitioners apply research findings: 1) improving the credibility of the researcher who is working with practitioners, 2) shifting power over the program agenda to the practitioner, and 3) improving program organization and operating procedures.
