The major focus of this course is the exploration of research evidence that informs and supports the implementation of Clinical Teaching in classroom contexts. Participants will consider how they can use evidence-based practice to enhance the effectiveness and impact of their classroom actions and identify appropriate interventions for students, when necessary. Specifically, they will use the clinical judgement decision-making model to examine the current evidence base about what works best, what criteria can be developed to make decisions about student success, and how to select, implement, review and communicate research-supported teaching strategies that address identified student needs.

On completion of this subject, students should be able to:

  • Analyse and integrate key findings from research to understand major influences on student learning and teacher performance.
  • Understand how to identify and critically appraise appropriate evidence-based practices in response to identified student need
  • Implement, monitor and evaluate evidence-based practices as they relate to specific classroom contexts

Generic skills

On completion of the subject, students will have the knowledge, skills and understanding to enable them to:

  • Identify and critically analyse research on practice
  • Develop and argue a case for change
  • Summarise key research findings in a given area
