Innovation Evaluation Grant Workshops

10:00–12:30 on 24 April 2018

Schools within our Research School Network are eligible to apply for an IEE Innovation Evaluation Grant. The IEE will award grants to fund pilot evaluations of innovative teaching and learning approaches. These must support the Research Schools Network’s goal of improving the attainment of pupils – especially those from disadvantaged backgrounds.

Goals of the Innovation Evaluation Project

Schools and teachers often try out new and promising innovations. Sometimes these have been developed in isolation. Sometimes these are adaptations of approaches that are already supported by evidence. Either way, the grant is designed to support schools in the managing and evaluation of these projects.

The specific goals of this fund are to increase the evidence base by supporting evaluations of innovations of teaching and learning approaches, communicating the findings among the Research Schools Network, and encouraging applications for larger systematic evaluations of promising approaches. The evaluations will be pilot studies of innovations, not large-scale randomised controlled trials. Nonetheless, there should be a comparison of pupil achievement that will indicate whether or not the intervention has potential.

Dates of future funding rounds

Summer term round to open on Monday 30 April 2018 and close on Friday 15 June 2018.

We will support network schools by offering one-day workshops on planning and submitting applications for this funding.
