This inaugural professorial lecture will be given by Garry Hornby, Professor of Education and Associate Head (Research), from the Plymouth Institute of Education.
The lecture will focus on the development of evidence-based teaching practices for improving student outcomes, the identification of which has provided inspiration throughout Garry's career.
Eight key evidence-based teaching practices are identified from the literature and Garry's own research. Brief accounts of their theoretical and research evidence bases are provided, along with brief guidelines about their usefulness. Common barriers to the use of evidence-based teaching practices that are frustrating their implementation are discussed.
Finally, guidelines are presented for ensuring that evidence-based teaching practices are embedded in the daily practice of educators.
This lecture is free to attend and is open to all. Light refreshments will be available afterwards.
Start time: 17:00.
