Assessing Quality in Applied and Practice-based Educational Research
This ‘Framework for Discussion’ originated from an Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) funded project whose remit was to examine in a critical and informed fashion the different definitions of and approaches to applied and practice-based research. The authors seek to clarify the concepts and models currently employed in order to enable a review of recent governmental and other initiatives which recognise the value of applied and practice based research. The primary motivation is to a

Sci-tutors: Scientific Enquiry: Ideas and Evidence
This article on the Sci-tutors website explores the conceptual barriers to understanding the nature of science or 'how science works'. In general many scientists and science educators do not have a clearly articulated view on the subject and it remains a disputed field. It seems clear that 'doing science' is an activity that all humans engage in to some extent and that it requires curiosity, intellectual honesty and a search for understanding, explanation and application in the contexts of obser

The article draws attention to disagreements about what counts as student engagement and contends that it means different things to different people. It highlights the fact that certain conceptions of engagement (for example, students physically participating in class activities) may not be educationally fruitful. This is because mere participation is not a guarantee that students are cognitively engaged
