Science Learning Plus (SL+) funders will host an online CAISE forum called "Bridging the practice-research gap," from July 6-17.
The forum seeks to bring together participants from the UK and the US to share promising practices for creating practice-research collaborations, a key goal of the SL+ Program. Topics will include: How to make collaborations effective; Bridging between practice and research; Starting new collaborations; International collaborations. All are most welcome to share experiences of all kinds and ask questions. This is a great opportunity for newcomers to informal STEM education, those interested in applying for Phase 2 SL+ grants, and anyone interested in learning or sharing about partnerships, especially across the practice-research gap. The forum will be jointly moderated by Sue Allen, a consultant to the Noyce Foundation, and Colin Johnson, an advisor to the Wellcome Trust.
