Pedagogic research and evaluation provide evidence to inform and shape the development of learning and teaching. The usefulness and availability of robust and contemporary evidence is dependent on the interest and commitment of the community of education practitioners. Your enquiry into how you, and others, organise, teach and learn is a vital contribution to the evidence base in any given field of education.
Formal enquires often develop from questions like ‘why does this teaching method work here and not there’ and ‘how should I respond to the learners’ requests for this or that’. These acts of reflection can stimulate more thorough investigations of the learning situation and rthen sharing the results with the wider community.
