Topic: The Knowledge Network for Applied Education Research: An Ontario Network Promoting the Use of Research in Education
The KNAER-RECRAE (Knowledge Network for Applied Education Research-Réseau d’échange des connaissances pour la recherche appliquée en éducation) was established through a competitive process as a collaborative partnership among the Ontario Ministry of Education, the University of Toronto and the University of Western Ontario. The KNAER-RECRAE focuses on building, advancing and applying robust evidence of effective practices through research conduction, synthesizing state-of-the-art knowledge from existing bodies of evidence (from Ontario and beyond) and facilitating networks of policy-makers, educators and researchers working collaboratively to apply research-to-practice. It also acts as a “knowledge broker” to facilitate and lead the spread of established and new evidence through networks across Ontario’s policy, education and research communities, and connects with national and international networks. The two co-directors will give an overview of the KNAER’s growth, mission, vision and next steps.
