Research USE

Research Use and Scholarship in Education

Research Use is a broad term that includes two powerful streams: research on research use (how do we explore the use of research in policy and practice); and research communication (how can we improve the communication of research findings). It includes theoretical interrogation of research use (what are the underlying philosophical issues and mechanisms involved in research use); empirical examination of research use (what data can we gather to interrogate activities related to research use); and application of research (how can we apply research to problems of education policy and practice).
