Using IRIS Connect to support professional learning

This EEF-funded research project will explore how schools can best make use of IRIS-Connect video technology to support effective professional learning
 
The challenge
 
At the heart of the self-improving school system is the need for teachers to be engaged in rigorous and impactful professional learning, however research shows that much professional learning often doesn't translate into sustained changes in practice in the classroom.
 
The project
 
Driven by a recognition that many schools have access to IRIS-Connect technology but that additional support is needed in using it to its full effect as a powerful professional learning tool, the EEF are funding research into how IRIS-Connect can be used to have the most impact on teachers' practice. 12 schools are taking part in a 6 month pilot study, and they will be keen to share their learning with the wider network following completion in July 2016.
 
Key information
 
Stage: Scaling across network
Level: Primary and Secondary
Support/resources available: Termly workshops, online content and modular professional development programme. Schools without IRIS Connect can use the content through a standard license free of charge.
Commitment required: 1 day per term at learning event attended by project lead. Time spent in school is at your discretion but estimate 2 hours per film club (including homework). 2 film clubs per term.
