In today’s global education landscape, where the quantity of research reports is believed to double every year, getting to the core of an issue and making meaning of it all is more important than ever. Improvement in policy and practice—whether at the federal, state, school system, organizational, or community level—is dependent on deep questioning, effective analysis and synthesis, informed insights and an understanding of patterns and trends.
We understand the power of knowledge to drive change and how to help move static information to effective action.
Collaborative’s research and documentation services are aimed at helping organizations to:
- Expand knowledge. We can help your organization keep abreast of new research, emerging trends and players, and changing policies and practices that influence the context in which you work.
- Foster partnerships and alliances. We can help make useful connections among concepts and people that can improve understanding and insight among a range of stakeholders, and lead to stronger constituencies for change.
- Promote sensible solutions. We can help to surface consequences, avoid past errors, and generate worthwhile and innovative alternatives.
- Collaborate and share. We can help to ensure that the research and documentation products you create are applicable to intended users and get to the right people at the right time to spur action.
