How to be a research engaged school
Guidance for schools and teachers on how to be a research-engaged school
Several groups at the CEBE event in December 2014 suggested aspects of work that need to be done to encourage the development of research-engaged schools. These have been merged into a single proposal, titled ‘How to be a research engaged school.’ The project, as it stands, would outline some clear and actionable guidance for schools on how to create an environment in which evidence-informed practice can flourish.
A group interested in developing this idea are considering issues such as:
- creating a culture of staff reflection
- integrating evidence into senior leadership team (SLT) thinking and aligning with long-term school priorities
- setting out roles and opportunities for different staff as part of an evidence-informed school
- appropriating the role of action research
- knowing where to look for external research inputs and information
- tools to help with implementation
There are a number of existing relevant resources on these topics, so part of the work could involve integrating these into a practical and accessible resource with an emphasis on research-engagement.
