Chartered College members might be interested in the following opportunity with NFER:
The EEF (Educational Endowment Foundation) are interested in undertaking research to support teachers with the use of worked examples/model answers. NFER (National Foundation for Educational Research) has been commissioned to explore the feasibility of a research trial in this area.
We are currently consulting with KS3 English teachers, and would like to invite you to take part in an individual consultation of 30- 40 minutes with one of our research team. We are keen to hear from a range of teachers about your practice, whether or not you use worked examples or model answers.
Individual consultations will take place by telephone or Teams, at a convenient time for you over the next few weeks.
We will explore:
- whether/how you currently use worked examples/model answers in KS3 English
- practical arrangements for KS3 English teaching and assessment in your department (eg teaching hours, tests used)
- the value and feasibility of different designs for a research trial (eg teacher interests/ questions about using worked examples and model answers, and willingness to adopt specific approaches)
All consultations will be conducted in confidence, and neither you nor your school will be named in any of our reports. You can find information on how we will lawfully process any personal data in our privacy notice on our project website.
We hope you will help us to shape future research in this important area of teaching. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested, I will then be in touch soon to arrange a good time. Please email me if you have any questions.
