Evidence into Practice

Rationale and Aim:
The use of effective feedback, and developing students’ metacognition skills, are evidenced-based interventions that have a big impact on pupil progress at small financial cost. The Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) estimates each intervention can bring an additional 8 months progress for pupils.

This programme gives an introduction to the evidence-based surrounding ‘Feedback’ and ‘Metacognition’, with a view to supporting teachers to embed ‘what works’ into their practice, in order to improve outcomes for their pupils.

Intended impact and outcomes:

  • Improved knowledge of evidence-based pedagogy surrounding ‘Feedback’ and Metacognition’.
  • Successful implementation of evidence-based classroom approached for ‘Feedback’ and ‘Metacognition’ in your classroom.
  • Improved workload as a result of using more effective feedback.
  • Improved capacity at a whole school level for upskilling and embedding evidence-based practice around ‘Feedback’ and Metacognition

Format:

  • Six half-day sessions across the academic year.
  • Based on a professional Development model structured around initial expert input, collaboration with peers to transform theory into classroom practice, and an opportunity to review impact and refine approaches.

Target Group:
Recently qualified teachers who are keen to develop their
evidence based practice, with a view to taking on additional responsibility by contributing their learning to the whole school agenda.
