This session will focus on sharing best-practice of evidence-based practice with Prof Bart Rienties. Having worked at three different universities (Maastricht University, University of Surrey, Open University UK), each with their own approaches to research excellence and evidence-based practice, I will share my experiences of how SYU academics and staff can use their research and practice in an evidence-based manner. In my own practice, I have published 87 journal articles, 59 papers in conference proceedings, 32 chapters in edited books, 18 reports to international and national organisations, and 2 edited books. Across these outputs, I work in an interdisciplinary manner and have published with 150+ authors from 40+ institutions. Perhaps more importantly, I have successfully led a range of institutional/national/European projects and received a range of awards for my educational innovation projects.
