EVIDENCE BASE

This course is underpinned by the principles of evidence-informed practice (John Hattie, Jonathan Sharples), which seeks to mobilise research knowledge more effectively in professional practice. There are a number of influential publications in this field, which explore the interface between education research and classroom practice, including The Power of Protocols (Joseph P. McDonald, Nancy Mohr, Alan Dichter, Elizabeth C. McDonald), Making Thinking Visible (Karin Morrison, Mark Church, and Ron Ritchhart), High Impact Teaching Strategies: Excellence in Teaching and Learning (Department of Education and Training, Victoria). These have proven instrumental in shaping the content, design, and structure of this course.
