Evidence-informed practice in facilitating learning

Introduction
This paper will seek to explore the literature surrounding the diverse debate and narratives which have defined the body of academic research surrounding facilitating learning and the centrality of evidence-informed practice. There has been a diverse shift in focus between the domains of research and practice. Therefore, this paper will endeavour to ascertain key developments in order to nurture a strong awareness of the available research. The intellectual genesis of this analysis surrounds the work of a British academic, Professor David Hargreaves, who elucidated a new concept of educational research.

The intellectual foundations of research principles in the delivery of education are an important dynamic. This paper, therefore, will outline the academic journey of this progression.
