The aim of the study was to examine teachersâ€™ current practice, attitudes and skills in relation to the effective use of research outputs in their professional practice. It focuses on teachersâ€™ information literacy within the context of two associated factors, access and attitudes.
Surveys of nursery, primary, secondary teachers; head teachers; education authority advisers; school librarians; and Schools Library Services in Scotland, England and Wales provided a broad overview of teachers confidence in finding and using research information; the sources they use; attitudes and barriers; and dissemination of research information. In-depth and open scenario interviews
provided qualitative data about the flow of research information and allowed teachers to talk of their experiences of using research evidence. Group exercises.
examined the ways in which teachers judge research outputs and their preferences
in terms of format and style. Finally, respondents from the above phases were
invited to participate in an online discussion forum focussing around four key themes
arising from initial findings.
