Evidence based practice

This group will be of interest to those whose focus is making teaching and learning more effective, from early years through primary and secondary schools, to further education. The scope of the group will take in a wide range of issues within the field of education, with a specific focus on educational psychology, as well as guidance and counseling within schools.

Topics to be focused on include, but are not limited to: parental involvement, inclusive and special education, teaching of literacy and numeracy, teacher education, e-learning, behavior management, bullying, cooperative learning, and social and emotional aspects of learning.

The group will focus on research on the collection and dissemination of research evidence on strategies, interventions and programs in the field of education, using quantitative, qualitative and mixed method research methodologies.
