What does it mean to use research evidence well in education? How do we move from quality evidence to quality use?  

 

21 October 2020

6.00 to 7.00pm (AEDT) | 3.00 - 4.00pm (Singapore) | 8.00 - 9.00am (BST) 

The Centre for Evidence and Implementation and Monash University are delighted to present the next webinar in the Evidence and Implementation Summit Virtual Series. You are warmly invited to join Dr Mark Rickinson, Associate Professor in the Faculty of Education at Monash University,  alongside Dr Jenny Donovan, Director of the National Evidence Institute and Dr Robyn Mildon, Executive Director of the Center for Evidence and Implementation (CEI). CEI UK and Europe Director Jane Lewis will facilitate the session. 

There has been wide-ranging debate about what constitutes quality evidence, but very little dialogue about what constitutes quality use of evidence. Against the backdrop of the establishment of a new National Evidence Institute in Australia, this discussion will consider what it means to use research evidence well and ask how we move quality evidence to quality use. 

                  

This webinar will also share insights from the Monash Q Project, a five-year study with the Paul Ramsay Foundation to understand and improve the use of research evidence in Australian schools. Drawing on the Q Project's new 'Quality Use of Research Evidence' QURE framework, the speakers will discuss emerging issues and implications for strengthening the role and improving the use of research evidence in schools and school systems with and beyond Australia.      

The COVID-19 pandemic presents global and Australian education systems with a considerable challenge. Ensuring that the best evidence on what works in education is taken up across the sector is more critical than ever. This is essential listening for all those interested in the state of education and the role evidence-based research can play.      

Our webinar guests have extensive experience with research evidence in the education sector. Dr Mark Richardson is an Associate Professor in the Faculty of Education at Monash University. His work is focused on understanding and improving the use of research in education. He has undertaken research, evaluation and consultancy projects around evidence-based policy, evidence-informed practice and user engagement in Australia and the UK. He is currently leading the Monash Q Project.

 

Dr Jenny Donovan is Inaugural Director of the National Evidence Institute. Previously, she established and led the Centre for Education Statistics and Evaluation (CESE) as Executive Director. Dr Donovan began her career as a high school teacher in Sydney's western suburbs and has since worked in a number of education roles in operational and policy areas, including some years as Deputy Director of a not-for-profit education assessment agency at the University of New South Wales. She was Managing Director of the National Learning Progressions and Online Formative Assessment Initiative, a national priority project for Australian education ministers.
