Some things that I’ve noticed changing in the field as more folks enter the RPP space:
There is greater enthusiasm for the RPP model in general, and folks are increasingly looking for ways in which an RPP might serve to bridge existing gaps in education research and practice. There are more diverse organizations being integrated into RPPs, i.e., not just school districts and universities, but also non-profit organizations, community-based groups, and even students and families. Greater organizational diversity also brings a wider variety of models and topics being researched, which is a terrific progression for the field overall.
