1 - Social Organization of Networked Improvement Communities: A Conceptual Framework and Empirical Studies of Its Dimensions

Sun, April 7, 3:40 to 5:10pm, Metro Toronto Convention Centre, 200 Level, Room 202B

Session Type: Symposium


Structured collaborations between practitioners and researchers working towards addressing persistent problems have recently emerged in education, with limited literature around a conceptual organization and research around their effectiveness. One form of such Research-Practice Partnerships are increasingly forming - Networked Improvement Communities (NICs) - organized around the use of improvement science methods and networked learning. This symposium offers first a conceptual framework of NIC development derived from the literature and actual cases of NICs, followed by three empirical studies building a deeper understanding of different dimensions of the framework. A discussant knowledgeable of RPPs and improvement networks will serve as a critical friend and engage the audience in discussion.
