For those who were at the HEA's annual conference in July, you may have heard about the launch of Evidence Net. It is a new Academy initiative that provides access to evidence on learning and teaching in HE, as well as opportunities to discuss and explore how that evidence can usefully impact on practice and policy to enhance students’ learning experiences.
The website covers three main areas: resources, events and networks. The EvidenceNet team will be producing and commissioning summaries and syntheses of research so that you can always keep up to date with new research or policy documents, get a quick overview of key or seminal articles, and make sure you don’t miss out on high profile work. EvidenceNet is aimed at anyone working in teaching and learning in higher education, and the website is searchable by keyword, discipline area, pedagogic theme, or type of resource.
A quick search for the term 'law' within resources yields 17 hits. This is conveniently broken down in a side bar so that I can see that 3 relate to technology, 9 are equality and diversity, 2 are policy and 1 is CPD etc.
The team will be expanding the content and adding new features throughout phase two over the next year so that this site will grow to become an authoritative stop for learning and teaching research and resources.
