Twitter NQT surgery: how to use research in the classroom
Evidence-based practice is important for teachers at all stages in their career. We all want the approaches and innovations we use to be the ones that have the greatest impact on our young people – and we don't want to waste our precious time and energy on teaching strategies and interventions that just don't work.
But there is a lot of education research out there and most NQTs don't have heaps of spare time (or the confidence) to be poring over paper after paper. That's why our next #NQTsurgery will look at using research. We will cover a range of topics, including:
- How/where to find research?
- Tips on how to know if a paper will answer your questions
- How to read and get useful information from research
- What makes robust research? How do you know?
- Once you find something that sounds like it could work for your students, how do you go about implementing it?
