What works best in action

Mary and CESE’s Rydr Tracy, also talk about how the 2020 ‘What works best’ resources can support teachers and student educational outcomes.

New professional learning courses for teachers
Our new ‘What works best’ publications are now available as online, registered professional learning for NSW public school staff.  

The courses involve reading the research, then reflecting on how it relates to your own practice. They are flexible in their design, meaning you can complete it at your own pace or as part of a group.
