• Act as an introduction to educational research.

The majority of the webinar will be spent in a question and answer session with Professor Steve Higgins from Durham University, who is the lead author of the Toolkits. Educators planning to attend this webinar can submit their questions for Steve to info@evidenceforlearning.org.au.
