Debate on evidence based education (video)

In this engaging discussion, filmed at the Battle of Ideas, speakers confront the rise and rise of evidence-based teaching in British classrooms. All agree that teaching is a craft that needs to resist the fads and fashions of brain gym, NLP and neuroscience. But do we need further research and better evidence to improve teaching?

Participants in the debate: Tom Bennett, Carl Hendrick, Ellie Lee and David Perks. Read more about the debate here.
