This blog featured on the Research 4 Schools website. The Center for Research Use in Education ,based at the University of Delaware, Minnesota and Pennsylvania, is “Rethinking Research for Schools”. Their mission is to expand the study of research use and produce a clearer picture of what drives it, from the production of knowledge by researchers to the application of research in school-based problem-solving and decision-making processes along with seeking to identify strategies that can make research more meaningful to classroom practice.
The blog looks at OUP’s perspective on our role in providing evidence on the impact of the materials OUP publishes and is based on a presentation delivered at the recent International Congress for School Effectiveness and Improvement: ICSEI 2020 delivered by Dr. Penelope Woolf who is Head of Impact, Oxford Impact at Oxford University Press and Honorary Norham Fellow at Oxford University Department of Education. Dr. Woolf is passionate about the evidence-based agenda in education and ensuring that publisher’s resources are designed and developed to ensure that they “work”.
