Balanced research and practice
Education is an often-researched field. However, not all studies match the needs of educational practice. This is a missed opportunity for both research and practice. In our educational research labs, research and practice come together. Teachers, teacher-educators, and researchers work together on themes concerning tailored education for gifted learners. A more critical and research-oriented mindset of teachers is stimulated. This is done in multiple ways. Teachers for example set up and conduct practical research at their own school. This research matches the needs of their school concerning giftedness, which makes the research very valuable for their practice. Other activities are, among others, critically reviewing scientific articles, practical articles and learning materials for (gifted) learners. In our inspirational talk we show you how your school can work towards a critical and research-oriented mindset in the school.
