Evidence-Based Practice

Professional Development
Skills for Life Network

In this section we put a spot light on evidence-based practice, which includes evidence from multiple sources, including:

  • published research
  • your professional judgement / experiences
  • your organisational context
  • stakeholders’ values and concerns

See here for a further exploration of the concept of evidence-based practice.

Research

Lou Mycroft and Joanne Miles have both contributed their reflections to a collection of working papers produced by Leeds Becket University, ColletivED.

CollectivED Working Papers

Joanne Miles reflects on the AP National Conference that took place in March earlier this year (page 68) and Lou reflects on her rich experiences on teaching the Thinking Environment (page 105). Interestingly the Thinking Environment was identified in ICF’s programme evaluation as an approach which participants highly valued.

Do get in touch with Lou Mycroft  if you would like to contribute a working paper.

Adding to this growing evidence base are several of our collaborative projects from last year. Look out for the specific contexts; ACL for example and how stakeholders such as employers are involved.  Do have a read of the case studies.

Lou Mycroft, CoP Co-Lead and trainer is undertaking research into Community Education in England. It would be fabulous if you wanted to respond to her research question, particularly pertinent if you are or have worked in adult and community learning.
