Evidence based practice

Evidence based practice is that which is based on research evidence of effectiveness. A number of organisations provide information to assist teachers to make informed decisions about the teaching programs and practices they adopt.

Evidence based practice guides for a number of areas of education can be found in the Special Education section of the Center on Instruction at: Evidence-based Practice

Five from Five is an initiative of the Centre for Independent Studies that aims to improve literacy levels by ensuring all children receive effective,evidence based reading instruction.

Research-based principles of instruction are outlined in Principles of instruction (Rosenshine, 2012).

Macquarie University Special Education Centre (MUSEC) provides briefings on a range of practices and programs, for details see MUSEC briefings.
