Evidence for Learning are focused on supporting evidence-informed decision making through building, sharing and encouraging the use of evidence.
Our free webinars are designed to help education professionals learn how to turn evidence into practice in schools and how to use evidence to measure the impact of their teaching and leadership. Join Dr Tanya Vaughan, Associate Director at Evidence for Learning as she discusses different topics in evidence-informed practice.
We will continue to release webinar dates throughout 2019 so please keep checking back to this page. Alternatively, subscribe to the Evidence for Learning eNews.
Webinar: Evidence-informed science practice
Tuesday 5 March 2019
In this webinar educators will learn about seven key recommendations for teaching science. These include preconceptions, metacognition and self-regulation, modelling, memory, practical work, language of science and feedback. In addition, the elements of self-regulation of cognition, metacognition and motivation will be explored.
This webinar will help practitioners know how to teach their students to plan, monitor and evaluate their learning in science and what are the most useful areas to provide feedback (e.g. process and self-regulation) to improve student learning.

Webinar - Putting evidence to work: a school’s guide to implementation
In this webinar educators will learn about the six recommendations for good implementation. These are:
- Treating implementation as a process rather than an event.
- Creating a leadership environment and school climate conducive to good implementation.
- Define the problem you want to solve.
- Creating a clear implementation plan.
- Supporting staff, monitoring progress and solving problems.
- Planning for sustaining and scaling the intervention.
The six recommendations are woven into the four key stages of implementation of 1) Explore, 2) Prepare, 3) Deliver and 4) Sustain. The stages and foundations of implementation will be investigated within the context of an Australian case study of a school’s improvement journey.
Co-presented by Robyn Mildon PhD, Executive Director of the Centre for Evidence and Implementation (CEI) and Tanya Vaughan PhD, Associate Director at Evidence for Learning (E4L).

Webinar: Effective feedback
Tuesday 14 May 2019
Effective feedback practice can increase student progress by as much as an extra eight months over a year. However, implementing feedback effectively would usually require schools investing significant time in research and external professional learning. To save schools this time and effort, the Australian Institute for Teaching and School Leadership (AITSL) in partnership with Evidence for Learning (E4L) have developed a suite of feedback resources for schools. The free-to-access, evidence-based resources provide practical support to hit the ground running in applying effective feedback practice in the classroom to enhance student learning outcomes.
In this webinar, participants will learn about how they can use the feedback resources in their school.
Co-presented by Erin Corbyn, Senior Project Officer at Australian Institute for Teaching and School Leadership (AITSL) and Tanya Vaughan PhD, Associate Director at Evidence for Learning (E4L).
