Enriching the Preparation of Education Researchers and Practitioner-Scholars: Linking School District Research Priorities and University-Based Policy Evaluation Research Courses
Malen, Betty
Journal of Research on Leadership Education, v12 n1 p97-115 Apr 2017
This article analyzes a novel effort to strengthen the preparation of both practitioner-scholars and education researchers. It describes a university-district partnership that offers graduate students the opportunity to develop research understandings and skills through participation in a "real" research project and provides district leaders the formative evaluation information they need to guide decision making on major reform initiatives. The article suggests that partnerships that link school district research priorities with university-based, policy evaluation research courses can enrich the university's approach to the teaching of research methods and can yield rigorous studies that both serve local districts and speak to broader academic and professional audiences.
