About the course

Evidence-informed Approaches to Education is a course of 30-minute lectures on six vital topics for secondary school teachers. Each talk outlines the key research on a particular topic and offers suggestions on how to implement the ideas in your classroom. They are followed by a series of questions for group CPD discussions or to guide educators’ individual reflection and research.

This free course is offered by the Tony Little Centre for Innovation and Research in Learning at Eton College as part of Eton2020: A New Social Vision.
