    • The importance of evidence
      • For PGCE students and teachers, researchers and policy-makers…
      • … evidence to back up propositions, practice, policy
        • For trainee and practising teachers:
          • What works, in what contexts?
          • What is the range and quality of evidence for PGCE assignments?
          • What will help in the progress toward a Masters in Teaching and Learning, or one of the new subject-based Masters?
        • For researchers and policy-makers:
          • What international comparative data and evidence is there?
          • What is worth trying out for future practice?
    • What’s available on TTRB?
      • Recently posted material includes:
      • Peter Tymms on evidence-based education
          • Discussions on a hierarchy of evidence: film and text of keynote
          • See http://www.ttrb.ac.uk/ViewArticle2.aspx?ContentId=14977
        • ‘ What counts as evidence in education?’
          • Article-length piece, originally written for undergraduate students at York, but reviewed and commissioned by TTRB for teachers, researchers et al.
          • Discussion is invited
          • What counts as research, and what as resource?
    • Links to further sites and services
      • Some examples of where to find good evidence:
      • The English teaching pages – the new MA in English Education, here at IOE, will recommend use of TTRB as a starting point for literature searches
        • Glossary
          • English as an additional language
        • So it’s not just a case of what is on TTRB, but what it links to:
        • The Research Evidence in Education Library at http://eppi.ioe.ac.uk/cms//Default.aspx?tabid=56
        • Futurelab’s literature reviews at
            • http://www.futurelab.org.uk/resources/publications-reports-articles/literature-reviews/
        • The E-librarian service
    • Its potential significance
      • In the hands of teachers, researchers – and policy-
      • makers – it’s a powerful tool…
      • Existing policy and practice can be questioned, improved
      • Options can be looked at, reflected upon, applied
        • Gaps in research and resources identified
        • School students can look at it too…
        • New material added by its users
        • … and the TTRB site itself can be improved, via feedback
        • to the Editorial and Commissioning Advisory Board!
