Workshop facilitator

Kerry Pulleyn

Name of Workshop

Research schools – what they are and what they do.

Who is it for

Anybody interested in research-informed teaching practice to improve student attainment.

Brief synopsis of workshop :

Research schools are a collaboration between schools, the Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) and The Institute for Effective Education (IEE) to create a network of schools that will support the use of evidence to improve teaching practice.

There are many evidence-based resources and tools available to help improve teaching practice and raise the attainment of pupils, but it can be difficult to get research into schools in ways that really make a difference in the classroom.

Research schools aim to lead the way in the use of evidence-based practice. Through the network they will share what they know about putting research into practice, and support schools in their region to make better use of evidence to inform their teaching and learning so that they really make a difference in the classroom. 

The workshop will outline the work research schools do and how they collaborate with others to improve student outcomes.

What you will get out of it

An introduction to the ways in which research schools are helping to develop evidence-based teaching and what opportunities there are for collaboration.
