Measuring the Effectiveness of Knowledge Creation Activity as a Means to Facilitate Evidence-Informed Practice: A Study of Early Years Settings in Camden, London
Brown, Chris; Rogers, Sue
Evidence & Policy: A Journal of Research, Debate and Practice, v11 n2 p189-207 May 2015
This paper has two key aims. First, it examines the authors' attempts to use knowledge creation activity as a way of developing evidence-informed practice amongst a learning community of 36 early years practitioners in Camden, London. Second, it illustrates how the authors approached the idea of measuring evidence use and our engagement with two separate measurement scales; the trustworthiness of which are subsequently tested in interviews and observation data. Our findings are encouraging, suggesting that knowledge creation activity provides an effective way of communicating research; also, that our measurement scales provide meaningful ways to ascertain levels of expertise in evidence use.
