Research engagement for school development

WAS £10.00 £5.00

Product description

189pp. First edition 2011. Very good condition with light shelfwear only. Slight ending to front cover corners and small mark to front cover. This thought-provoking book examines the new and growing phenomenon of the research-engaged school' - schools that not only encourage their staff to carry out their own research, but also use published research to inform practice and improve the quality of education. The author draws upon his scholarship and practice in local authorities, schools and higher education, and gives a balanced account of the practitioner research movement and its relationship with policy and practice. He reflects on current debates and thinking in this arena and argues for new ways for schools to understand and practise research engagement as part of school development. In-depth case studies are featured throughout and illustrate how individual school leaders and schools have used it for a variety of motivations and benefits. Research Engagement for School Development gives authoritative guidance that will help current and aspiring school leaders towards a deeper understanding of research engagement. It gives advice about its practice and management; pointers towards providing effective and sustainable support; an overview of recent developments and initiatives that schools can draw upon; and shows different standpoints towards evidence-based reform'. Equally importantly, it should help to generate new ideas on how to support the growth of effective practice in this vitally important field. This book will be of value to everyone in schools, universities or local authorities who are affiliated with, or interested in, the practitioner research movement. It will also inform school staff studying for a higher degree as well as policy-makers.
