4/3/2018
More
For the second in this series of short podcasts, I spoke to Professor Peter Tymms of the Centre for Evaluation and Monitoring (CEM) at Durham University.

Dr Erika Patall is an Associate Professor at the University of Southern California. We spoke on the phone a short while ago and recorded it here for you. She talks about her research, explains what motivation in a student can look like to a teacher, and how to encourage students to be more invested in essential, measured outcomes. Erika also talks a little bit about the process of the research syntheses and meta analyses that she undertakes. Dr Patall gives practical advice, based upon her...

Robert and Elizabeth Bjork: an interview

2/1/2018
More
After a brief hiatus from recording and publishing podcasts over the Christmas period, we were delighted to be able to speak to Robert and Elizabeth Bjork at UCLA about their research. Robert and Elizabeth are perhaps best known for their work on "retrieval practice" - the idea that repeated testing is more effective as a mechanism for learning than repeated study. Before Christmas, we put out calls for questions from teachers, researchers and others in the education sphere:...

Welcome to the first episode in our new (monthly) podcast series. Here at EBE, we've been organising talks and interviews, and bridging the gaps between education policy, research and practice, for years now. Spreading the word has been the issue. We got such great feedback about our guest speakers at the Assessment Lead Programme Residential last week, that we felt it would be a shame not to get the messages across in another form, to a wider audience. So here goes... The very first...
