Engaging parents with evidence-based approaches to education.


With the rise of evidence-based pedagogies, there has been lots of discussion about how best to help teachers interact with evidence but very little discussion of what this means for parents. As teachers’ approaches to assessment and memory are becoming shaped by research evidence, the classroom experience may be changing in ways that parents find unfamiliar or threatening. This session will help teachers explore what teachers should do to communicate messages about evidence-based practice, and give them strategies to help communicate teaching changes effectively.

Across two days, over 250 sessions will take place at the Festival. A full timetable of sessions will be available from late May 2019. Until this point we will only be announcing the day(s) sessions will be taking place.
