Qu'est-ce qu'une "bonne" recherche en éducation ?

Abstract : What are the criteria for "good" research in the educational sector? How can research in education be made more "scientific" and more useful to society? What types of methods and approaches should be adopted to achieve this?For several years now, these sensitive issues have been heavily debated in the Anglo-Saxon research world, and more specifically by the supporters of "Evidence Based Education". The objective of this concept is to identify the most efficient research approaches and to improve the level of research throughout the education sector.Although much less regularly discussed or approached from different angles in France, these issues are nevertheless also the subject of various debates. During recent discussions over the most appropriate methods for learning to read, reference was made to several research studies. From a more general perspective, during the recurring controversies concerning the IUFM and educational research, research work has often been accused of being "inefficient" and not sufficiently "scientific".This Newsletter takes a global look at these issues, on the basis of a selection of recent articles and publications that encompass an inseparable combination of researchers, decision-makers and teachers in the educational sector. We will start by presenting the different aspects of the Anglo-Saxon debate on Evidence Based Education and their consequences, before looking at how related issues have been dealt with in France over the last few years.
