Participants will have the opportunity to consider the benefits of adopting an evidence-informed approach, where to start looking for research evidence, and what questions to ask when encountering new strategies or approaches. These themes will be further explored throughout the seminar series, which will focus on how participants can incorporate research into their practice to support learners.
