Research on Learning in Formal and Informal Settings (DRL)

Science Learning Plus Forum

Science Learning Plus (SL+) funders, of which NSF is one, will host an online CAISE forum called "Bridging the practice-research gap," from July 6-17: http://informalscience.org/perspectives/news/science-learning-plus-forum. The forum seeks to bring together participants from the US and the UK 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. If you are interested in participating in the forum, please request to join the Group when it opens on July 6. To do so, click the link to the Community page on informalscience.org where the Group will be listed: http://informalscience.org/community.
