In 2014, Education Scotland commissioned researchers from the Robert Owen Centre at the University of Glasgow, led by Professor Christopher Chapman, to work on a research and development project focusing on ‘Knowledge into Action’. The project explored the processes by which knowledge from research and other sources can influence action across the education system in Scotland.
This project involved a literature review and initial research into four pilot projects. The aim was to develop and test evidence-based models that support the effective translation of knowledge into action within the Scottish education system, with a particular focus on building capacity to support Education Scotland’s role as the national improvement agency for education.
The findings of this research are now published, and you can find the report and more details about the project by clicking on the link below:
