Planning for Action: Evidence-based projects ideas for 2022

At the Research SIG’s October meeting, participants were introduced to ways practitioner research can help turn your educational hunches into evidence-based practice and how to use that evidence to support your library’s services and resources.

Participants shared ideas about evidence-based projects they would like to explore in the future, and to help people start to consolidate an idea into a tangible action for 2022, participants were tasked with identifying one project topic and then having a go at developing their project idea into a research question using either of the following formats:

  • What is the effect of [the change you make] on [the thing you want to change] in [the participants in your research]?
    e.g., “What is the effect of genrefying the fiction collection on reading engagement in Year 7 students?”

  • How can [your change] + [an appropriate verb] + [the thing you want to improve] in [your participants]?
    e.g., “How can genrefying the fiction collection improve/enhance/encourage reading engagement in Year 7 students?”

So, we are now seeking volunteers to share their project idea and research question with participants at this November meeting. This is a great opportunity for people to ask questions about their project idea and receive feedback from others about their research question.

How do I contribute as a presenter?

  • Create one PPT slide (please set your slide size to Widescreen 16:9 and include your name in the bottom right corner of the slide)
  • On your slide include:

* your research question as the heading

* when you will implement your project (e.g. Terms 1-2, 2022)

* no more than 2-3 bullet points (using large font) describing what you want to achieve by undertaking this project

* an image to illustrate your project idea (optional)

  • And on the night of Wednesday 24 November between 7.30-8.30pm, be prepared to speak about your slide when it is shown on the screen

How do I participate?

Bring your preferred drink and nibbles along at 7.30 pm to get some ideas or provide feedback to those sharing their research question.
