Event description

Description

This training, developed by the Scholars Strategy Network, aims to provide concrete tools to empower researchers to foster long-term, reciprocal relationships with policymakers. These relationships -- which are most formally organized as research-practice partnerships, but can take many other forms -- have the potential to address policy crises and opportunities when they arise, as well as to promote policy improvement over the long-run. The training will run from 3-5 pm with a happy hour afterward at Nine Irish Brothers from 5-7 pm.

The Scholars Strategy Network is a nationwide, voluntary, interdisciplinary membership organization for academics. The network is comprised of more than 800 scholars from more than 200 colleges, universities, and research institutions in 44 states. Scholars organize in 31 regional chapters across the nation including an active and growing chapter in Indiana, led by Dr. Rosalie Clawson, Dr. Shelley MacDermid Wadsworth, Dr. Leigh Raymond, and Dr. S. Laurel Weldon.

The national organization has created an intensive, interactive workshop to provide researchers the opportunity to learn best practices for developing reciprocal relationships with civic intermediaries and policymakers. In the pursuit of its mission to bridge the gap between American universities and the American policy process, the organization has identified the knowledge and skills researchers need to more effectively use their expertise in the policy realm. The centerpiece of this workshop is an approach that emphasizes relationships and research-practice partnerships between academics and practitioners, rather than the traditional model of one-way information dissemination.
