Evidence-based teaching is essentially instructional practice that is informed by research that has demonstrably positive impact on student success.
However, this does not suggest that an "evidence-based teaching" strategy is going to be successful in every class, with every group of students, within any teaching mode or context. Situational factors play important roles in determining what may be most effective. Nonetheless, the concept emphasizes the importance of using evidence to drive instructional decisions.
The CTLE is dedicated to working with instructors to find, contextualize and implement evidence to direct our instructional thinking and actions. Please contact the CTLE Director, Enoch Hale, to discuss how we can move from anecdotes to evidence. The CTLE and its national network has numerous resources available.
