Implementing research in schools
In 2015, CRESP Director Henry May, and SOE researcher Elizabeth Farley-Ripple were awarded a $5 million research grant to establish the Center for Research Use in Education (CRUE). The center will be located within CRESP and will study knowledge utilization, or gaps between research and practice within schools.
Over the next five years, May and Farley-Ripple, in partnership with scholars at UD, the University of Pennsylvania and the University of Minnesota, will develop measures to analyze:
- researchers’ and educators’ perspectives of education research;
- the relationships between researchers and educators;
- educators’ knowledge about key research concepts; and
- the different ways research can be used in practice.
