Extending the opportunity to all – Program elements
The open-access A Learner’s Toolkit project will bring together schools, state-based authorities and international researchers to investigate the impact of the preparatory study behaviours and strategies program across multiple contexts, geographies and school types. The initial conceptualisation of how the school partners will work together is modelled below.
The 2022 project would shape a professional learning model around the emergent knowledge brokering approach. Knowledge brokering presents a viable means to mobilise research across organisational boundaries and embed it in practice. We envision the 2022 rollout of the open-access evaluation, a triadic researcher–broker–practitioner partnership across multiple contexts. In extending the model initially developed by the UQ SLRC PSP project, the Churchie Research Centre team will assume the broker role. It will be the conduit between the practitioners (school leadership teams and teachers at participating 2022 open-access program schools) and researchers (Prof McDaniel and Dr Perry). The project will present a novel case study using knowledge brokering to foster triadic partnership, extending its incorporation of multiple researchers and school sites working from a joint knowledge base of the Science of Learning.
The program will consist of:
