Knowledge Sharing through Organizational Partnerships: Insights from the SEED Partnership Project
Federal education policy has expanded the focus on evidence-based strategies for improving student outcomes. A key challenge for educators and policymakers is identifying evidence-based strategies and adapting them to fit their local context and needs. One way to support the spread of evidence-based strategies is to facilitate knowledge sharing between education organizations that have experience developing and implementing these strategies, and organizations seeking to use the strategies. This brief shares lessons learned from a three-year project to develop partnerships between national non-profits implementing evidence-based strategies to prepare and develop effective educators, and educational organizations interested in applying the lessons learned from their work.
