Old Adversaries United: Benefits of Collaborative Research.
Norris, Carol A.; And Others
Collaborative research maximizes the use of both physical and human resources in education. Benefits to the cooperating institutions (public schools and universities) are improvements in facilities, costs, programs, delivery services, climate, and training. Collaborative research eliminates the separation between the generation of knowledge and its application in the instructional setting. By collaborating on research from its inception to its conclusion, school personnel may find that both the experience and the results attained are practical. Benefits of collaborative research are found in the process itself which enhances skills of individuals on the research team. "Research for the sake of research" no longer exists. University researchers find acceptance by the schools and have a field laboratory for study. Research results are made viable and meaningful as they are applied in the school setting. Both the process and the product of collaborative research can have immediate and long-term positive impact. It can provide the vehicle for development of added research and leadership skills of university and school personnel while also enhancing the educational program. (Author/GK)
