Abstract: This mixed methods evaluation measures partnership indicators and brokering functions within four provincial research-practice-policy networks (Math, Well-Being, Equity, and Indigenous Knowledge). The research involves a six-phase, mixed-methods design that targets Ontario Ministry of Education supported KNAER initiatives and knowledge networks across the province. The data for the developmental evaluation will come primarily from four sources: (a) a scoping literature review and environmental scan, (b) interviews with relevant KNAER leaders, staff, network hosts and partners, (c) ongoing feedback mechanisms, and surveys of partnership indicators and KMb efforts, and (d) case studies.
