Session Type: Invited Speaker Session
For decades, researchers, educators, and policymakers alike have decried the divide that exists between research and practice. How can researchers be a part of the solution to this challenge? In this session we explore a strategy for improving the impact of research through forming partnerships with existing and wide-reaching professional associations. This session involves presentations from leading professional associations in science and mathematics with respect to the key needs for research they have, followed on by an opportunity to gain practice in outlining a new kind of tool -- a “practice brief” – a two page summary targeted to problems identified among panelists, which is one example of tools or representations researchers can develop or co-develop to strengthen connections and relevance of research to practice.
