10 SES 06 E, Evidence Based Knowledge for Teachers
This proposal focusses on a current discussion of worldwide interest for teacher education, namely that of teaching as an evidence-based knowledge (EBK) profession: exactly what evidence and how this is generated, acquired and transmitted, by, to and for pre- and in-service teachers.
This session will take forward this debate by discussing different theoretical and international perspectives, each exemplifying and illuminating issues of how teachers can engage with EBK to enhance their practice and thus make significant contributions both to school improvement and to enriched outcomes for learners. Addressing as it does the increasing interest in the notion of teacher-as-researcher both as a producer and a consumer of research-generated knowledge, this presentation will be interactive with the audience participants, using the methodologically innovative application ‘Padlet’ in conjunction with participants’ own mobile devices, (or in their absence using ‘Post-Its’). Padlet is an on-line virtual bulletin board that securely enables collaboration, reflection and information sharing. Through the session a series of ‘think pieces’ are posed to the audience participants to stimulate a concluding session of structured conversation, the main points from which are recorded live on the Padlet. The results are made available to all participants who supply their email addresses, signalling their consent to provide data by engaging in the discussion. Following a time limit set for contribution, the data will be analysed and coded for each think piece and published through EERA. Conclusions will be drawn concerning the current situation of the mobilisation of EBK for teachers and teacher-educators worldwide.
