Systemic Implications of Pedagogy and Achievement in NSW Public Schools

Systemic Implications of Pedagogy and Achievement in NSW Public Schools (SIPA) (ARC Linkage/NSW DET, 2004-2007)

This project was designed to provide vital information for the NSW Department of Education, by examining the relationships among professional development, pedagogy, and student outcomes, and to make significant contributions to educational research on these central educational phenomena. Combining research with the resources of the NSW DET in a large longitudinal study in 36 schools, the project made a significant impact on schooling, school reform and educational research.
