 Bringing evidence-based practice to life: the role of the EEF’s Research Schools. 

Saturday 10 March @ 2pm

Evidence-based teaching is a term that has gained greater prominence in recent years. The establishment of the Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) in 2011 and the insights gleaned from cognitive science have deepened our understanding of what makes effective teaching. However, our understanding of how we implement the findings in the classroom is less developed. To help overcome that, the EEF and the Institute for Effective Education (IEE) have established the Research Schools network: a coalition of 23 schools across England who act as hubs of evidence-based practice, providing support to schools to help them access, understand and apply research in an everyday classroom context.

Twelve of the Research Schools are located in Opportunity Areas, providing expertise and support to improve the attainment of disadvantaged pupils in particular. This session will explore the evidence on the most effective ways of raising attainment, and how Research Schools are helping support teachers to understand and use this to inform their teaching practice.
