Senior Leadership Team Research Interest Group
If evidence-informed teaching is to become a reality, we need to create time and space to engage with the research evidence. But, more than that, we need to be able to discuss the research collaboratively and especially, discuss how to translate research findings into practice in the classroom.
The School Support Service, in collaboration with Birmingham City University (BCU), has created a forum for SLT members to meet to discuss research topics – akin to a book club. We (the group) will choose a research topic, BCU will supply key background information on the research topic and we can come together to discuss the implications of the research, its strengths and limitations, and the practicalities of implementing in the classroom (or not).
The sessions are free to attend. Meetings are held at Midland Croft, Tile Corss, Birmingham, B33 0AW, 4-6pm.
