Making connections: Educators' use of research to inform their practice: Final report
This project examines relationships between research and teaching by studying educators' (mainly teachers) access to, and use of, research and theory. The study focuses on identifying barriers to educators' use of educational theory and research findings.
The report utilises data collected in 1999 from observations at professional development courses, interviews with the providers of these courses, and questionnaires for educators who were the course participants. It also utilises data collected in 2000 from follow-up telephone interviews with course participants.
