Engaging with Evidence
Date posted: April 11, 2019
You’ve heard about using ‘evidence-based’ and ‘evidence-informed’ practice, but how do you identify best evidence? There’s so much information available, how do you know what’s useful and reliable?
The Institute for Effective Education has recently released an Engaging with evidence guide to help you:
- understand about different forms of evidence and different kinds of research
- understand which types of research/evidence are best placed to answer different sorts of questions
- be aware of the limitations of different forms of evidence
- have some key questions you can ask to test the relevance and usefulness of evidence sources.
This practical, easy to read guide to assessing information for educators is available for free download.
