Abstract

A shared understanding is an important precondition for cooperation between educational science, administration and practice. This article argues that a theory of change approach which is part of impact-oriented planning could be a useful tool for communication. The author proposes a theory of change for cooperation in area-based education networks and gives insights into how science and practitioners can complement each other using this tool and approach. While the approach seems promising, some limitations are also discussed.
