The Center's First Conference in 1991
In March 1991 the Center sponsored its first invitational
conference, Research and Practice: Bridging the Gap. The
Center's founding Director, Dr. Shirley Jenkins, described
the conference as looking "at gaps between practice and
research, valid concerns of each, and the ways in which
methodologies can be intertwined to find answers to address
contemporary problems." An emerging theme in 1991 was that
the profession should give priority to identifying
mechanisms which promote practitioner-researcher
partnerships in generating knowledge.
