Event description

Description

You are invited to the Research-Engaged Practice Network Meeting on Thursday 29th June 2017 at 4.30pm to 6.30pm in Room 12-04-12, Charles Street Building, City Campus. Registration and refreshments are available from 4.15pm.

1. Developing a network of evidence champions: changing teachers’ attitudes towards research

The project leader and evidence champions will provide an overview of Hull Collaborative Teaching School Alliance’s research into the effectiveness of a designated evidence champion, the work undertaken by evidence champions and the impact this had on evidence-informed teaching and learning. This project formed part of a national project, commissioned by the National College for Teaching and Leadership on the use of evidence champions.

2. Trial of SMART spaces revision strategies

SMART Spaces is a revision strategy developed from what we understand about memory from both neuroscience and cognitive psychology. A group from Hallam Teaching School Alliance and Queen's University Belfast have been studying the effectiveness of this strategy following a grant from the Wellcome Trust and sponsored by the Education Endowment Foundation. In this presentation the project leader, Alastair Gittner, Deputy Head at Stocksbridge High School, will explain the evidence behind the practice, findings from the efficacy trial and outline how far they have got with the effectiveness study.

3. Using visual and creative methods in practice settings

In the first of an ongoing series of inputs on research methods, Dr Anne Kellock of the Sheffield Institute of Education will share her experiences of using visual and creative methods to undertake research in practice settings. The presentation will be illustrated using examples from Anne’s research in primary school settings in the UK and New Zealand. The discussion will include the transferability of such research methods to other types of practice and the benefits of their use, in particular with smaller groups of participants.

4. Discussion and market place

An opportunity for further discussion of the presentations and the relevance to your context with peers and the presenters – and to link up with colleagues interested in research-informed approaches to similar practice issues.

5. Getting research going and moving it along: facilitated by Dr Andrew Farrell (Tapton school) and Dr Gill Adams (SIOE)

An opportunity to share your ideas for and./or review your progress in undertaking, practice-based research. The facilitators will share some frameworks to support this work.
