  1. 1. Teachers make the worst students: so how can we become better at using the research? How can you move yourself, your department or school towards a culture of evidence based practice. @thrive_teach Martha Boyne Emily Clements Ben Wright
  2. 2. Why is evidence important? ‘there is a huge prize to be claimed by teachers…. by collecting better evidence about what works best, and establishing a culture where this evidence is used as a matter of routine, we can improve outcomes for children’. Goldacre, 2013 • Integral part of many professions • Used to inform policy and practice • A basis to implement new ideas • Bridge the gap between research and practice • Research schools @thrive_teach
  3. 3. How do you get there? CPD Library – Get your school to invest in making current reading accessible. Make use of social media: • Variety of perspectives • Look for links to research @thrive_teach
  4. 4. How do you get there? Completing a Masters • Meta view of education • Return to pedagogy • Grounded in research • Critical approach • Conduct own small-scale research Limitations: - Cost - Time @thrive_teach
  5. 5. How do you get there? Journal Clubs A whole school CPD opportunity • Promotes a reflective practitioner • Provides a space for a professional learning conversation • Promotes the critical thinker Limitations: • Time • Support @thrive_teach
  6. 6. How do you get there? We couldn’t talk about acquiring evidence without mentioning TeachMeets! (other conferences are also available) @thrive_teach • Take away one or two ideas to reflect upon and implement. • Network and listen to others’ experiences and perspectives on the topics covered.
  7. 7. How do you get there? Mini classroom projects: • Small group of professional interested in research • One theory/idea agreed and implemented • Cross curricular in multiple classes Limitations: • Scaling • Number of teachers taking part @thrive_teach
  8. 8. How do you get there? @thrive_teach
  9. 9. Obstacles you might face… • Time • Finding relevant research • Finances • Lack of support @thrive_teach
  10. 10. How do you get there? 1) Engage in pedagogy 2) Complete a Masters 3) Set up a Journal Club 4) Attend events 5) Conduct mini-classroom projects 6) Encourage your school and others to do the above! @thrive_teach
