- Research-practice partnerships with teachers and administrators to co-design, foster, and investigate sustainable technology-enabled networks for learning and advanced pedagogical practices.
- Design-based implementation research on learning communities to understand and develop teachers’ and students’ knowledge, attitudes, motivation, interaction exchanges, and learning.
PRACTIS is a research-practice partnership that include a university-based research team and school-based pedagogical consultants and teachers, engaging in, and investigating, activities of : a) co-design (collaborative learning design) of challenging learning activities, b) video capture of authentic classroom activities and, c) collaborative (data-based) reflective conversations. Inquiry and facilitation in the PLCs are central enablers of the three activities. We conceive of collaborative design and reflection as boundary activities between teaching and inquiry/research, mediated by rich artifacts from practice (mostly but not limited to video records of classroom events), that are experienced mostly through discourse, and that can be scaffolded by various facilitation processes.
