Overall aims and purpose
This module will explore the different ways in which evidence is presented and published and will examine how different forms of evidence inform professional behaviours and practices. The module will consider the different ways in which evidence is generated, accessed, and explored within different educational settings and contexts. It will examine how education professionals can access and interpret international evidence and how they can engage meaningfully and ethically with different types of evidence. The module will explore the ways in which the use of evidence can inform professional identity and collaborative relationships. It will examine how evidence can both inform practice and assist professionals in reflecting upon their practice.
