Using Research Well in Australian Schools: Q Discussion Paper 02

Research output: Other contributionResearch


In 2020, the Q Project surveyed and interviewed nearly 500 Australian educators to understand what is involved in using research evidence well in schools. This is a topic that has been investigated surprisingly little, both in Australia and internationally. This Discussion Paper, offers a unique practitioner perspective on quality research use. It presents educators' views on using research well in terms of key characteristics and connections to the Quality Use of Research Evidence Framework. It also outlines considerations for teachers, school leaders, system leaders, researchers, and research organisations in relation to increasing and improving the quality use of research in schools.
