ACDS paper: Evidence-based practice in T&L

The ACDS has launched its first occasional paper Evidence-based practice in learning and teaching for STEM disciplines from Tina Overton and Liz Johnson. The paper uses the published evidence on how learners learn to make the case for active learning, scaffolding and flipped classroom, authentic assessment. The authors translate the research to direct advice for teachers and teaching teams for STEM. Use this as a springboard for discussion in your Faculty.
