Why should you join our community?
We promote an evidence based approach to teaching, but why should you care?
The short answer is that learning about and adopting and evidence based teaching will dramatically increase the impact you have on your students learning. Teachers can make a difference, but some make much more of a difference than others. In fact, research shows that the best teachers have over 3 times the impact of their less effective colleagues.
Evidence based teaching:
- Offers you insight into what works, or more specifically, what works best – insight that is based on systematic study, rigorous research and impartial conclusions. It treats teaching as a science, which enables you to make decisions about how you go about your work in schools on the best available scientific evidence.
- Is independent of all-encompassing educational theories, systemic solutions and personal philosophies of teaching. While proponents of specific approaches seek out evidence to support their views, advocates of evidence based teaching examine all the available research – and they let the evidence fall where it may.
- Is self-correcting. As new evidence emerges, advocates of evidence-based education readily let go of past assumptions and embrace new practices. We are not slavishly devoted to particular practices – even the ones we currently preach. Rather, we let ourselves be guided by ongoing research. If new research reveals a better way, we readily follow this new insight.
