Disciplined Innovation: Harnessing evidence to support and inform improved pupil outcomes

6:00 pm to 7:30 pm, 27 September 2016

Disciplined Innovation 2

Event Information

Open to



Logan Hall, UCL Institute of Education, 20 Bedford Way, London WC1H 0AL

Speaker: Sir Kevan Collins, CEO Education Endowment Foundation

Chair: Becky Francis, Director, UCL Institute of Education

The recent rise in evidence-informed education policy and practice has included the emergence of well-designed, large, quasi-experimental studies.

Sir Kevan Collins will talk discuss examples of the ways in which this approach has engaged the English education system, and involved schools in new relationships with the academic community. These initiatives have captured and evaluated innovative practice, tested existing practice and encouraged professional collaboration. However, this change should not be seen as irreversible, and nor is it guaranteed to improve pupil outcomes. Rather, it is the response of school leaders to the evidence they access which will determine the impact of this trend.

This event is free of charge and open to all, and you are welcome to turn up on the evening. If you have mobility difficulties and find it difficult to use stairs, please email m.walker@ucl.ac.uk by Friday 23 September so that special arrangements can be made.
