The appropriate use of research to inform practice is fundamental to the entire Maths Hub programme.
LLME engagement with our Researcher in Residence, has highlighted that this is a complex area that requires further, targeted investigation. Access to research comes in many forms and we feel it is important for all leaders of professional development to better understand how this can inform their practice.
Last year, participants in this Work Group developed strategies to encourage the critical engagement with research by teachers. This year, we plan to build upon this work by trialling these strategies, reflecting upon their effectiveness, and refining advice for leaders of professional development.
What is involved?
Using their own Work Groups / programmes as case-studies, participants will collaboratively develop a set of guidance resources for leaders of professional development.
During workshops, participants will investigate the best use of a variety of sources of research (research papers, books, articles, blogs and videos) and build a library of suggested sources and mechanisms to encourage a ‘relativist’ engagement by teachers.
