This book explains how decisions about education and educational policymaking can be informed by research-based knowledge. The authors develop a framework to organize three approaches to informing education policies with research-based knowledge. These approaches are policy dialogue as persuasion, policy dialogue as negotiation, and policy dialogue as participation and organizational learning. In addition, they develop a nine-stage model for how best to permit research to influence this type of organizational learning. A current review of literature in research vitalization in education is also discussed.
