The terms ‘research-informed’ and ‘evidence-informed’ are ubiquitous in Australian education. But what do these terms mean? Are you ‘research-informed’ if you have read the latest book from a prominent education academic?
Getting Evidence Moving in Schools (GEMS) is a three-year investigation led by Evidence for Learning that explored what 205 educators in 24 schools did when they worked with professional learning providers who helped them to engage with research evidence.
This webinar shares insights from the newly launched GEMS Insights Paper through a panel discussion with those involved in the GEMS project.
We encourage teachers, school and system leaders from across Australia to join us in this conversation.
What you will learn:
- Explore key insights on research mobilisation in schools including embedding research use into school improvement processes, working with professional learning providers to support research use and evaluating research use.
- Hear what school leaders, professional learning providers, researchers and education department staff are doing to deepen and extend the use of research evidence in schools.
- Reflect on how you could use these insights to deepen the use of research in your setting.
This webinar is facilitated by Danielle Toon in conversation with:
- Dr Simon Breakspear, Founder, Teaching Sprints
- Dr Peter Burrows, Lead Researcher, Learning Leader and Co-Designer, EdPartnerships International
