Why R&D Deliverables Often Fail to Deliver in Education

A seminar that was held last week as part of IOE’s Year 2019/20 Series on Educational R&D hosted a guest talk by Dr. Dirk Van Damme, Head of the Centre for Educational Research and Innovation at OECD’s Directorate for Education and Skills. In his presentation, Dr. Van Damme shared his thinking about the main reasons why the domains of educational R&D, policy, and practice are often at odds with one another and what measures could help alleviate this discrepancy.
