I have used mixed methods to understand research engagement in England’s ‘Evidence-informed Teaching Profession’. Data from a survey (n=109), interviews (n=6) and case studies (n=3) have led to an understanding of evidence-informed teaching as a trio of research-engagement activities. On a basic level, school teachers engage strategies based upon evidence from a variety of sources. Some actively engage with research and some engage in their own research of different forms.
