Improving Educational Research: Toward a More Useful, More Influential, and Better-Funded Enterprise

Abstract

"Educational research is not very influential, useful, or well funded. This article explores why and suggests ways that the situation could be improved. Our focus is on the processes that link the development of good ideas and insights, the development of tools and structures for implementation, and the enabling of robust implementation in realistic practice. We suggest that educational research and development should be restructured so as to be more useful to practitioners and to policymakers, allowing the latter to make better-informed, less speculative decisions that will improve practice more reliably."
