Schools needed for our Impact study
We are conducting research to look at the impact of Holocaust education and are seeking control schools to participate. That is, schools whose teachers have not attended the UCL (IOE) Centre for Holocaust Education CPD programmes. The research would involve students in Key Stage 3 completing two surveys: one before and one after they have learned about the Holocaust in their history lessons. We will then look at how their knowledge of the Holocaust has changed from before to after these lessons. Participating schools will get a bespoke report of findings for their school that could be used as evidence for self-evaluation processes and or to demonstrate engagement with research. They will also receive a £50 book voucher by way of a thank you.
This is an excellent opportunity for schools to be part of the Centre’s world class research. Teachers who have previously participated in our research have commented on how valuable and interesting the process was for them and their students:
Our students thoroughly enjoyed their participation in the research process and I feel their involvement has further cemented their appreciation of the importance of Holocaust learning and education. The research findings have been incredibly illuminating in terms of how we teach the Holocaust and how, going forward, we can improve our scheme of work, our overall pedagogy, as well as fostering a more cohesive approach to Holocaust learning across the whole school.
