How can teachers make use of research in the classroom?

Lisa, a secondary school teacher from Cumbria, wants to know how teachers can use research in their teaching practice.

Professor Toby Greany discusses how teachers can access research, how they can collaborate to investigate their own questions and the importance of knowledge mobilisation throughout schools and between them.  He mentions the Pupil Premium Toolkit and the Institute for Effective Education as sources of good quality research findings.  He advocates for practice based research as being valuable for professional development in terms of becoming a more sophisticated teacher and improving leadership skills.
