Gathering Data and Generating Evidence

This part deals with issues of monitoring practice, gathering data and generating evidence. It contains the following chapters:

  • Monitoring practice and gathering data
    • What kind of data will we gather to show the situation as it unfolds?
  • Interpreting the data and generating evidence in relation to living critical standards of judgement
    • How do we explain our educational influences in learning?

At this point we adopt a more pedagogical style and offer advice to you, the reader, on how to monitor practice, gather data and generate evidence. We also give examples of how we do this in our own research.
