About the IALEI research theme 2011
The project for 2011 is to explore what we know about the most effective mechanisms for universities, as primary producers of education research, to move research into policy and practice. The term ‘knowledge mobilisation’ is one of a number of terms used to describe the processes through which research influences policy and practice. There has been a huge expansion of interest in this issue around the world, on the part of universities, research funding agencies, governments, and other education partners. But the flurry of activity is not yet matched by reliable knowledge about what is being done or how effective various approaches are.
