When evidence-based teaching is NOT enough

Collecting evidence of what works in teaching and learning is generally seen as an important but difficult undertaking. Critics would argue that despite decades of this activity, and associated technological innovation, what goes on in many classrooms has not radically changed since the 20th century. Changes in education are more often driven by untested theories and individual initiative than they are from a translation of research into widespread practice. This talk will examine some of the issues involved in getting evidence-based change implemented on a large scale. It will also highlight some approaches that may help bridge the gap between researchers and practitioners.
