TLRP: Towards Evidence-based Practice in Science Education 4: Users perceptions of research, TLRP research briefing 4
Calls for evidence-based practice raise issues about what constitutes 'evidence' for development of educational policy and classroom practice. This project focused on the experiences of teachers of science and a range of other science education practitioners. Interviews and focus groups explored the nature, influence and potential of research in science education as a public form of evidence impacting on policy and practice. This enquiry identified some of the factors promoting and inhibiting the use of educational research.
