For information, a descriptive of both the Campbell UK and Ireland and ECG sessions are below:
Campbell UK & Ireland Session
The role of collaboration in complex evidence synthesis
Professor Sarah Miller
Dr Ciara Keenan
Dr Jennifer Hanratty
In this session the Campbell UK & Ireland team will report on their activities over the last 12 months as well as reporting the findings from three systematic reviews in the area of homelessness that the team have recently completed. The reviews were commissioned and funded by the centre for Homelessness Impact (CHI) and based on CHI’s Evidence and Gap Maps. The mixed methods reviews explored the effectiveness of accommodation-based programmes, discharge programmes and access to health and social care services in improving outcomes for those experiencing, or at risk of experiencing homelessness. In addition to reporting the results of the reviews, the team will also discuss the challenges of conducting systematic reviews of complex interventions and the collaborative, analytical and theoretical approaches that they used to address these.
Education Coordinating Group:
Using evidence from Campbell reviews to inform the changing landscape in Education
Trine Filges, Dan Fitzpatrick, Jens Dietrichson
This session will include three presentations on recently published reviews that were supported by the Education Coordinating Group. The presentations will focus on: the effectiveness of small class sizes for improving student achievement, single-track year-round education for improving academic attainment and targeted school-based interventions for improving reading and mathematics for students with or at risk of academic difficulties. The presentations will be followed by a facilitated discussion and the emphasis will be on how we can use the evidence from existing Campbell reviews to inform school practice in the context of the Covid-19 pandemic. The session will also include an update on the activities of the ECG over the last 12 months and highlight funding, training and review priorities for the year ahead. The session will be facilitated by the ECG Co-Chairs: Professor Sarah Miller (Queen’s University Belfast) and Professor Roisin Corcoran (University of Nottingham)
WE HOPE TO SEE YOU THERE!
