Evidence for Learning are focused on supporting evidence-informed decision making through building, sharing and encouraging the use of evidence.
Our free webinars are designed to help education professionals learn how to turn evidence into practice in schools and how to use evidence to measure the impact of their teaching and leadership. Join Dr Tanya Vaughan, Associate Director at Evidence for Learning as she discusses different topics in evidence-informed practice.
We will continue to release webinar dates throughout 2019 so please keep checking back to this page. Alternatively, subscribe to the Evidence for Learning eNews.
Webinar: Evidence-informed science practice
Tuesday 5 March 2019
In this webinar educators will learn about seven key recommendations for teaching science. These include preconceptions, metacognition and self-regulation, modelling, memory, practical work, language of science and feedback. In addition, the elements of self-regulation of cognition, metacognition and motivation will be explored.
This webinar will help practitioners know how to teach their students to plan, monitor and evaluate their learning in science and what are the most useful areas to provide feedback (e.g. process and self-regulation) to improve student learning.

Webinar - Putting evidence to work: a school’s guide to implementation
In this webinar educators will learn about the six recommendations for good implementation. These are:
- Treating implementation as a process rather than an event.
- Creating a leadership environment and school climate conducive to good implementation.
- Define the problem you want to solve.
- Creating a clear implementation plan.
- Supporting staff, monitoring progress and solving problems.
- Planning for sustaining and scaling the intervention.
The six recommendations are woven into the four key stages of implementation of 1) Explore, 2) Prepare, 3) Deliver and 4) Sustain. The stages and foundations of implementation will be investigated within the context of an Australian case study of a school’s improvement journey.
Co-presented by Robyn Mildon PhD, Executive Director of the Centre for Evidence and Implementation (CEI) and Tanya Vaughan PhD, Associate Director at Evidence for Learning (E4L).
