Leading the use of research and evidence in schools

Dr Chris Brown

This collection of diverse (and sometimes clashing) views on the current drive for schools to become 'research-engaged' asks how time-pressured teachers and school leaders can work with research to improve their practice.

With contributions from teachers, journalists, researchers, senior academics, policy advisers and CPD consultants this book aims to support schools as they grapple with the challenges of using (and generating) evidence. Each chapter opens with a brief overview and includes resource boxes – signposting extra information and case studies – and messages summarising the key areas of discussion.

The book closes with a checklist that provides both a summary of the core themes and an opportunity for leaders to take stock of the progress they have made in embedding successful research engagement in their schools.

In listing research, EdCentral makes no judgment or recommendation as to its quality, validity or methodology and none should be inferred. Through peer ratings left by education practitioners, EdCentral’s aim is to support the development of a repository of shared knowledge and experience.
