Module 8: How should you put evidence into action in your school?

This module is one in a series developed to support AIS ACT school leaders explore research evidence and its application in schools.

This module is the penultimate of the series, and we invite you to set out actions for your own use of research evidence. Start by watching the short video below to explore the key concepts.

Mobilising evidence can be tricky – but using research evidence to inform your decision making can be a discrete action, or set of actions, that will give you the best start. When it comes to implementation, your professional expertise and judgement come into play when deciding whether or not approaches and recommendations are appropriate for your chosen priority. You know your school best.
